Hello Students,

As we prepare for the start of Summer II next week, we wanted to share important reminders and updates regarding a Health, Wellness and Safety Webinar with university leaders; the face coverings and masks requirement; and helpful online resources. We will share additional updates as more information becomes available. 

Health, Wellness, and Safety Webinar – Experts Field Your Questions
Thursday, July 2, 3 pm – 4 pm

Texas State University has hosted a series of webinars for faculty and staff to hear updates from the TXST COVID-19 work groups regarding the Roadmap to Return, summer II and the fall semester, and precautions in place to protect the health and safety of our Texas State community. 

On Thursday, July 2, university leaders are hosting a Health, Wellness and Safety webinar open to students, faculty and staff. The webinar will be recorded for those not able to participate during the scheduled time. It will feature updates and remarks from:

  • Dr. Lisa Lloyd, Vice President for University Administration

Please click on the link below at the date and time of the webinar to attend. The link will not display a presentation until the webinar begins. Time will be allotted for questions.


REMEMBER: Cloth face coverings are REQUIRED indoors and outdoors on Texas State campuses, unless you are alone. Being alone for the purposes of indoor spaces in all Texas State facilities means that you are in a discrete room by yourself. Being alone when outdoors means that you are not part of a group, you are not in a crowded area, and you are going out of your way to ensure social distancing of at least six feet is maintained. Wearing a two-ply cloth face covering must become second nature to all of us. Read more about quality face coverings on the Face Coverings & Masks page.
