Return to Campus FAQ
Q: Where are students required to wear them? What about faculty and staff?
A: All members of the University community are required to wear masks while on campus where social distancing is difficult to maintain. This means always wearing a mask when in a University facility and outside while walking to and from classes or meetings.
Returning to Campus
UTC is making plans to be fully operational with students returning to campus for face-to-face classes in fall. All modifications made to schedules, policies and practices will be aligned with CDC and American College Health Guidelines. Resources to support faculty, students and staff are listed at the “Resources” menu below.

Health and Safety
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to continue practicing social distancing along with other recommended habits to avoid viral illness, including frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizer, cleaning or disinfecting high-touch surfaces and staying home if you are sick.
- Wash your hands. Often. Thoroughly.
- Avoid close contact with people who appear to be sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Cover your cough and/or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
