Face Coverings

Based on Governor Abbott's Executive Order, and with guidance from the UH System Office, University of Houston-Clear Lake will no longer require masks or other face coverings while on campus. Wearing a mask on campus is now a personal choice. However, if you have not been vaccinated, you are encouraged to continue wearing a mask to keep yourself and your fellow Hawks safe. 

Face coverings are recommended in the following limited circumstances:

  • Indoor public areas on campus, except where marked, even if you are alone. This includes all non-private office or residential spaces, such as lobbies, restrooms, classrooms, teaching and research laboratories, common spaces in residence halls, conference rooms, and break rooms; and
  • Outdoor spaces where six feet or more of physical distancing is difficult to reliably maintain.

As with all the guidance and protocols related to COVID-19, the University will adjust its guidance as necessary to reflect new information and findings.
