COVID-19 Cases at UNT

UNT’s primary goal as our community returns to campus is to help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. UNT is closely monitoring active cases from individuals to determine the impact to our UNT campus community in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible.

As a way to help mitigate risks to campus, UNT developed protocols to trace contacts within our community, including UNT faculty, staff and students who have tested positive for COVID-19. These protocols are in adherence with CDC guidelines and developed in conjunction with local health authorities.
