Texas A&M AgriLife Colleagues,
Texas A&M AgriLife employees are expected to return to work in person on Monday, Jan. 10. Mask-wearing, vaccinations and routine testing continue to be encouraged by public health officials. We appreciate those who were working remotely Jan. 3-7.
AgriLife will follow updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-approved COVID-19 protocols related to isolation and quarantine, which can be found here.
There will be increased opportunities this semester for free testing for all faculty, staff and students. Testing through Curative continues at locations around campus. Employees working outside of Bryan-College Station should check other testing sites which can be found on Curative’s website.
Texas A&M University has recently acquired at least 50,000 at-home test kits from the Texas Division of Emergency Management. Details will soon follow about how the free tests will be distributed to students, faculty and staff in the coming weeks. Supplies of these tests will be made available to all TAMU campuses across the state.
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 cases locally and across Texas. As history has proven, COVID-19 conditions can rapidly change, so please routinely check our guidance page for updates to existing protocols.
Remember these recommendations:
- Get fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes the booster shot; check here for on-campus locations and here for off-campus sites, including CVS and Walgreens. For those not in Bryan-College Station, check your respective websites for COVID-related information.
- Wear a well-fitted maskor face covering indoors, regardless of your vaccination status.
- Don’t come to work if you’re sick.
- Self-reporting a positive case of COVID-19 is required by the university through this page. This act of selfless service will help the university to understand and control the virus on campus.
