Office of the President

Dear TAMIU Faculty, Staff, Students and Campus Visitors,

Pursuant to Executive Order No. GA-36 issued 5.18.21 by Gov. Greg Abbott, face coverings are no longer required on the Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) campus. This is effective immediately and applies to all indoor and outdoor facilities and venues.

Although we are encouraged at the high vaccination rates for our faculty, staff and students, and for the Laredo community at large -- members of the University community who have not been vaccinated or who have ongoing concerns are strongly encouraged to continue the use of face coverings to reduce the likelihood of contracting COVID-19. As the science has shown and the CDC has affirmed, the best protection can only be acquired through vaccination.

TAMIU will continue to observe social distancing in classrooms and at University events as allowed. Our enhanced sanitation and social distancing protocols will remain in place. We also remind everyone, including those already vaccinated, of our on-campus COVID-19 testing. That information is available here.

Current campus signage will soon be replaced with new guidance.

For updates regarding the University’s ongoing response to COVID-19 information including testing and vaccinations, please continue to visit the dedicated online COVID-19 Response Center, which will be revised to reflect new guidance.


Be Safe. Be Well.

Pablo Arenaz, Ph.D.





COVID-19 Testing

TAMIU has entered into a partnership with CURATIVE for COVID-19 testing on campus. Convenient COVID-19 testing will now be offered every week, Monday - Friday, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.  Free testing is open to all members of the University community and the community at large and located in a testing kiosk in the breezeway between Dr. F. M. Canseco Hall and Anthony J. and Georgia A. Pellegrino Hall. Test results are generally available in 24-48 hours.

Employees will need to present insurance card onsite or provide insurance number for online registration. This only needs to be done for first and not subsequent testings.

Students with or without insurance will be able to test.
