Fall 2020: Plans for Campus

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will be open in Fall 2020 and is implementing a gradual return to the campus under guidance from Governor Abbott, the CDC, and The Texas A&M University System. In developing a course of action, the health and safety of our Islander Community continues to be our highest priority.

Faculty and staff began returning to campus in a limited capacity on June 8 under our Return to Work Plan. The plan include:

  • A phased, incremental approach for returning employees, allowing for continued telework and staggered schedules, when appropriate, to maintain reduced density on campus;
  • A willingness, when circumstances change, to modify protocols as necessary.
  • The implementation of proper social distancing measures (at least six feet apart) in workspaces;
  • Regular cleaning and decontamination of facilities and workstations;
  • A ready supply of hand sanitizer and cleaning/disinfectant products in appropriate locations;
  • The requirement to wear face coverings when adequate social distancing is not possible;
  • Directional guidance on safe foot traffic within offices, elevators, stairwells, and other shared spaces;
  • Protocols to conduct daily monitoring of temperatures and other relevant symptoms.

A full return to campus is anticipated on August 17. If the situation warrants it, changes will be made to this plan.
