Dear Round Rock Students, 

You may be aware that Williamson County, including our Round Rock Campus, is under a Stay-At-Home order through 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2020. The order was issued by Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell and is intended to help control the spread of COVID-19 by keeping people isolated at home. I encourage you to read the statement from Williamson County and the full order

Texas State University supports this order for protecting the health and wellness of our university community and the larger communities we call home. It’s imperative that everyone in the Bobcat family comply with the directive for the health and safety of our entire region.

While this order is in effect, students should not come to the Round Rock Campus. As you know, courses are being provided by remote or alternative delivery through the remainder of the spring semester. If you have questions about your individual program, contact your faculty supervisor for specific information. The university is working with accrediting and certification authorities to address program academic guidelines moving forward and will provide updates when available. 

Public universities such as Texas State are considered an essential function of government and will continue to operate with limited staffing during the Stay-At-Home order to serve our students. Many of our employees are working remotely and are reachable via email to address your questions and concerns.  I encourage you to visit the Texas State COVID-19 webpage for information and updates.

By working together, making smart choices, and complying with local and federal guidelines on prevention and mitigation, we can slow the spread of the virus.
