Buff Alert Emergency Notification: COVID-19 Health and Safety Message 10/14/20

A Buff Alert Emergency Notification is being distributed as a requirement of the U.S. Department of Education Clery Act, which guides what health and safety information universities share with their campuses.

As expected with our return to campus operations and activities on or about the WTAMU campus, there has been an increase of reported COVID-19 cases. In particular, 46% of the WT cases reported have occurred in the past two weeks. The Canyon-Amarillo area is operating at a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Level Red Amarillo Public Health Level Red which indicates a sustained increase or widespread transmission in active COVID-19 cases and stressed local hospital capacity in the Amarillo Area. The University requests that we all continue to do our part for the health and safety of ourselves and those around us. The campus has been responsive and is responsibly following required steps to continue operations and protect the health and safety of our campus and community at large.

As a reminder, if you experience symptoms of or test positive for COVID-19, refer to the Employee Guide for COVID-19 Positive Tests and Symptoms or the Student Guide for COVID-19 Positive Tests and Symptoms.
