UHV will move forward on reopening plan

UHV enters Phase 3 of its reopening plan

VICTORIA, Texas – The University of Houston-Victoria will move on Tuesday to Phase 3 of its Phased Reopening Plan.

The decision was based upon a recommendation from the university’s COVID-19 Reopening Taskforce and a review by the administration of COVID-19 data for the Victoria and Katy communities.

In Phase 3, UHV will continue to offer classes through a mix of hybrid, real-time online and traditional online modes with classroom occupancy moving from 15 percent to 30 percent. The number of faculty and staff on campus also will increase to up to 30 percent. Employees who can work remotely will continue to do so.

For students, faculty and staff who come to campus, current social distancing guidelines, face-covering requirements and increased cleaning will continue.

“We are encouraged by the positive signs of lower infection rates and increasing numbers of people getting the vaccine,” UHV President Bob Glenn said. “We are hopeful that these positive trends will continue in the days to come.
