Dear Texas State Community,

In response to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) internationally, Texas State University implemented a policy requiring persons traveling to a country with a CDC Level 2 or 3 Travel Warning to self-isolate at home for 14 days prior to returning to our campuses. Out of an abundance of caution, Texas State University is monitoring 10 people who are self-isolating at home and are not on campus. The cases are connected to international travel. There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among the individuals self-isolating and there is no reason for alarm.The university is committed to protecting the health of our Texas State community and will continue to closely monitor the evolving coronavirus situation. University business and classes will continue as usual. 

Emilio Carranco, M.D., M.S.
