Environmental Health & Safety supports the University’s Health and Wellness Campaign. Throughout the month of September EHS will share reminders and resources that support Mask Up, Vols Help Vols, and Keep Rocky Top Safe.
This includes the inaugural use of our theme for this academic year, “Safety begins between the ears”. Each month throughout the year, EHS will share an area of health, safety, or environmental stewardship tied to this theme.
“Safety begins between the ears” can mean many things. We hope it reminds all of us to wear our masks, follow all protocols, and Keep Rocky Top safe!
Three ways Vols can contribute
- Think how your decision to wear a mask or follow infectious disease protocols affects others. Understand how you help keep campus open.
- Feel empathy for those at risk of losing campus experiences, jobs, or income (including yourself).
- Actively support all UT COVID-19 mitigation measures by taking personal responsibility to follow protocols and by encouraging others to do the right thing.
See the Guide on Requirement to Wear Face Coverings for more information.
