COVID-19 Emergency Notice



August 28, 2020, 1:45 p.m. CDT

To all members of the Texas A&M International University community:

As the fall semester begins, we want to remind you that COVID-19 remains a risk to our global community, and we must all continue doing our part to slow the spread of the disease on this campus and in Laredo. The intent of this message is to share information about TAMIU COVID-19 resources and protocols for the fall semester. The full guidance documents, which outline the safety precautions the University is taking to minimize the spread of the virus, can be found on our dedicated TAMIU COVID-19 Response Center.

Ongoing updates, announcements, and alerts regarding University actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be posted on this site. 

Community Standards

Every student, employee, and visitor to the campus is expected to adhere to the following standards:

  1. Keep it covered
    • Wear a cloth covering over your nose and mouth. This is required in all campus buildings and outdors.
  1. Keep it clean
    • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds and/or use hand sanitizer
  1. Keep your distance
    • Maintain distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others
    • Adhere to indoor and outdoor gathering/event protocols
  1. Keep it safe
    • Do your part to slow the spread of the disease and have a safe semester


The University has established a COVID-19 Monitoring Committee which is charged with reviewing statistical data on a weekly basis to help inform the University’s decision making related to campus operations in consultation with the Texas A&M University System and local health officials.

As a reminder, the University will not communicate publicly about individual positive cases, consistent with FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) and other privacy considerations. Individuals who have been potentially exposed to a positive case will be notified through the University’s and/or City of Laredo Health Department’s contact tracing procedures, making public communications unnecessary.

Health and Wellness

Before leaving home for work or study each day, all individuals should check for symptoms according to the CDC Guidance.
