Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
A Message from President Mark Yarbrough
Fall Semester Overview
DTS Response Protocols
4/21/21 – Mask Update
Effective May 31, 2021, DTS will make a change to its COVID-19 protocols: masks will be optional on the Dallas and Houston campuses, except for specific indoor areas where social distancing cannot be maintained (e.g., elevators). Signage will designate these areas as “masks required.” Decisions on DTS-Atlanta and DTS-DC will be made later in consultation with local and state guidelines.
All remaining COVID-19 safety measures will remain in place until further notice. These guidelines will be updated as circumstances warrant.
3/3/21 – Mask Update
The Texas state government recently lifted the state mask mandate and has allowed businesses to open to full capacity. In doing so, it also gave cities, counties, school districts, and businesses the freedom to continue COVID-19 safety protocols as they see fit.
While we are encouraged to see COVID-19 infection and death rates declining and the vaccination rate increasing, DTS’s students, employees, and friends’ safety remain of utmost importance. Therefore, DTS will continue to follow its current Health and Safety Protocols and Pandemic Educational Plan (including masks and distancing) at all DTS locations and events until further notice. We will continue to monitor local, state, and national guidelines and announce any warranted changes to our practices.
