Current Tarrant County COVID-19 Community Level: Low
May 16, 2022: TCU COVID-19 data updates are currently paused. Spring 2022 semester data ending May 13, is archived here. The Fort Worth area, Tarrant County and the TCU campus have remained at consistently low COVID-19 transmission levels, as defined by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 Community Levels guidance. TCU’s Campus Readiness Task Force will continue to evaluate and respond to transmission levels on our campus and in our county and follow guidance from health authorities. Additional information will be provided prior to the fall 2022 semester, or earlier should CDC status change significantly.
