Face Covering FAQs

No. Following Governor Abbott’s May 18, 2021 Executive Order, face coverings are no longer required on campus but the University of Houston continues to encourage the wearing of face coverings, especially for individuals who are not fully vaccinated.

Those with COVID-19, even those who do not know they have COVID-19, naturally expel droplets contaminated with the virus that causes COVID-19 when breathing, talking, sneezing, coughing, etc. Wearing a face covering in public helps to limit the spread of the virus and is encouraged for individuals who are not fully vaccinated.

Face coverings are not required on the UH campus. However, use your own knowledge and select the option that best protects and comforts those around you. A good standard to follow is to wear a face covering in public settings, especially where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
