Workplace Prevention

In addition to general coronavirus prevention guidance, employees are expected to practice the following workplace prevention practices:

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 each day 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
See COVID-19 Diagnosis/Symptoms Protocols for what to do if you experience symptoms and report Potential Exposure to Coronavirus if you have potentially been exposed to COVID-19.

Social Distancing

  • The current social distancing protocol is based on current CDC guidelines for unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals. 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.

  • Respect others in communal or enclosed spaces including elevators by limiting entry.

Use of Face Cover

  • UH-Clear Lake encourages face coverings for those employees working on-campus in situations where they are in close proximity (within 6 feet) of others. 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. 

Respiratory and Cough Etiquette

  • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always 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.

  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.


  • Be generally aware of who you are in close contact with, especially for extended periods of time, so that contact tracing can be performed if you become symptomatic.

  • Provide information, as needed, to allow contact tracers from the University and the Health Department to conduct tracing.
