General Prevention Measures

Get vaccinated
Authorized Covid-19 vaccines can help protect you from Covid-19.

Get tested regularly
It is possible for people who are infected to infect others before they show symptoms or without ever showing any symptoms. All students, faculty, and staff may participate in regular testing even if you have been fully vaccinated, but we especially encourage those who have not been vaccinated to get tested weekly.

Wear a face covering
As the University System of Georgia (USG) works closely with the Georgia Department of Public Health to prioritize the health and safety of campus communities, the system encourages people to wear masks based on their preference and assessment of personal risk.

Complete the daily self‑checklist
Each day before coming to campus, protect yourself and others by checking the list of symptoms. Stay home if you feel sick.
