SAN MARCOS — Face coverings will no longer be required while outdoors on the Texas State University campus, but they must be worn while indoors.
The university still recommends unvaccinated individuals continue to take all precautionary measures, including wearing face coverings indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not feasible.
“Currently, only about 42% of Texans 16 and older are fully vaccinated,” said Dr. Emilio Carranco, Chief Medical Officer in a statement. “Getting more persons vaccinated will create a safer environment for all of us and lead to additional relaxing of prevention measures. Texas State will continue providing vaccinations on its San Marcos campus.”
Faculty, staff and students who wish to be vaccinated can call the Student Health Center at 512-245-2161 to schedule an appointment beginning May 24. Vaccinations will be available Monday through Friday and announcements will be sent out to the Texas State community when mass vaccination events are scheduled.
