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
The CDC recommends the use of masks inside public buildings even by fully vaccinated individuals. At Georgia Tech, everyone is encouraged to wear a mask or face covering while inside campus facilities.

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.
