Tigers Care: Health Guidelines

Protecting the health and wellbeing of our TU community starts with following these important guidelines as students, faculty and staff return to campus.

Proceed with Care

On campus, safety is shared. There’s never been a more important time to protect yourself and help ensure the health of your fellow Tigers. Follow the guidelines here to do your part and show you care about the entire TU community.

Guidelines  

Doc wearing mask


Masks – Wearing is Caring 

  • Masks are required in every building, except when alone in private spaces like offices and dorm rooms.
  • A mask is required outside on campus when six feet of physical distancing isn’t possible. 
  • Masks should cover both the nose and the mouth for optimal effectiveness.
  • Wash and disinfect masks after each day’s use to keep them clean and germ-free.

6 foot measure

Physical Distancing – Six is Safer

  • Keep six feet between you and others at all times, especially indoors.
  • Follow all directional markings and stay to the right when walking in hallways.

Doc washing hands

Hygiene – Wash and Repeat 

  • Frequently wash hands, at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Avoid touching your eyes or face.
  • Always cough or sneeze into your arm and not towards others.

Sickness – Isolate When Ill 

  • Self-screen for temperature and any symptoms.
  • If you’re not feeling well, stay home and alone.
  • Report any illness to towson.edu/covidreport.

COVID-19 Testing
