Health and Safety

Community Standards

Our community standards for health and safety are a shared responsibility for everyone at our campus locations: 

Daily Self-Assessment

Before coming to campus each day:

  • Take your temperature
  • Conduct a self-assessment of your health/infection exposure
  • Assess whether you are exhibiting any Coronavirus Symptoms

Your presence on campus means that you have completed a daily assessment of your health/exposure and you:

  • Are NOT exhibiting any Coronavirus Symptoms
  • Have NOT tested positive for COVID-19
  • Have NOT knowingly been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or suspected/presumed COVID-19

If You Feel Sick or Test Positive for COVID-19

Stay home and do not come to campus. Report your exposure and request approval to return to campus.

Cleaning and Sanitization

  • Hand sanitizer stations have been placed in all campus buildings. 
  • Facilities and Maintenance staff are required to wipe highly touched surfaces, including handrails, push/pull door handles, drinking fountains, and tables, throughout the day. 
  • Facilities and Maintenance staff will also conduct thorough sanitization of all classrooms, labs, common areas, and office suites. 
  • UHCL continues to monitor CDC recommendations regarding daily routine cleaning and will adjust accordingly.

Face Coverings

Per Governor Abbott's order, University of Houston-Clear Lake is no longer requiring face coverings on campus. More information and full details can be found on the Face Coverings webpage.

Personal Hygiene 

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
