Keeping the Hilltop Safe
It is the university's goal to continue to deliver the best educational and engagement experiences, campus life, and support to our students, faculty and staff that are aligned with the highest levels of health and safety. We will continue to take precautionary measures to quickly adapt to the changing pandemic conditions.
Austin Public Health recently revised their Covid protocols to match the Center for Disease Control's Covid Community Levels. Travis County is currently listed as Low. APH's "Risk-Based Guidance Chart" for each level can be found here. We are maintaining the temporary modifications for the semester and may make adjustments if the community level increases.
(Updated March 4, 2022)
Please note that we will re-assess all modifications and protocols as we continue to gain more data about cases in the Austin community and recommendations from the CDC, APH and university medical advisors.
Our Hilltoppers' diligence in completing daily TopperSafe screenings, wearing face coverings indoors, and submitting vaccination documentation, all contributed to the low number of cases in our campus community.
All students, faculty and staff are required to submit their vaccine documentation or approved, eligible exemption as outlined in the university's Covid-19 Vaccination Policy.
The St. Edward’s University Covid-19 planning and response is led by a team of cross-campus leadership with guidance from a panel of local, regional and national medical advisors and organizations. SEU continues to closely monitor local conditions and recommendations from the CDC, APH and our medical advisors, and uses this guidance to determine our level of operations for classes, student housing, campus events and activities, and any other adjustments to protect the health and safety of our campus community.
