Bobcat Pledge

Being part of our Bobcat community means we respect each other and commit to helping create a healthy and safe learning and working campus environment. Every student, faculty and staff member must take responsibility for practicing healthy behaviors and following the health and safety guidelines established by Texas State to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus and in the surrounding community.

As a member of the Bobcat community, I PLEDGE TO:

1. RESPECT OTHERS

  • Wear a face covering in all indoor public spaces
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet where possible
  • Wear a face covering outdoors when physical distancing is not possible
  • Stay home if sick, or if I have symptoms of COVID-19, or if I have had prolonged direct contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

2. RESPECT MYSELF

  • Wash my hands often with soap and water and use hand sanitizer frequently
  • Complete a daily self-assessment to check for COVID-19 symptoms
  • Seek medical evaluation if I am sick, or if I have symptoms of COVID-19, or if I have had prolonged direct contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
  • Avoid crowded activities or social gatherings where physical distancing is not possible or where others are not wearing face coverings

3. RESPECT OUR TXST COMMUNITY

  • If I test positive for COVID-19, or have had prolonged direct contact with someone who has tested positive, I will notify the Student Health Center
  • Follow CDC and university guidance on testing, contact-tracing, self-isolation and quarantine when appropriate

  • Practice these health and safety measures all the time, whether I am on campus, in the community, or at home
