What Fall 2020 Will Look Like



What to expect in your courses, modified on-campus support services, and campus life


Teaching & Research

Resources and strategies to adapt classes, tools and training, and research modifications 



Changes in your workplace, safety precautions, helpful employee forms, and more

Cleaning & Disinfecting

Custodial staff have been trained on effective cleaning and disinfecting methods and provided protective equipment. Custodial services will spray classrooms nightly with a hospital-grade sanitizer using an electrostatic sprayer.

Work Groups & Scenarios

Ten work groups have helped TXST plan to safely return to live, learn and work on our campuses for fall. The plan was formulated to scale in response to four possible scenarios as circumstances change.

Health & Safety Measures

These ten measures will help protect the health and safety of our learning and working environments. The most important principle is the face covering policy: Masks are required on TXST campuses when you're not alone.

Bobcat Pledge

Everyone in the Bobcat family must take extraordinary steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. We ask that all students, faculty and staff pledge to protect themselves, others, and our TXST community.

The Texas State University numbers include positive COVID-19 test results for students, faculty, and staff who tested at the Student Health Center, and who reported positive results after being tested at other sites.

Results received from other sites will be added to the graph based on the test date. On occasion, persons reporting their results from other sites do not report their test results immediately to Bobcat Trace. As such, case counts are subject to change when these results are incorporated.

Some students, faculty or staff who tested positive for COVID-19 at other sites may not have reported the results to the Student Health Center.

The Hays and Williamson County graphs show positive cases reported in those counties. The Texas State San Marcos Campus is located in Hays County and the Round Rock Campus is in Williamson County.
