The CDC has said If you’ve been fully vaccinated and boosted, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic. To reduce the risk of being infected and possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public spaces if you are in an area of potentially substantial or high transmission.
Vaccine efficacy is how well the vaccine works to prevent the disease for which it is designed. Covid-19 vaccines are effective against severe disease and death from variants of the virus that causes Covid-19 currently circulating in the United States. When these infections occur among vaccinated people, they tend to be mild.
The CDC continues to monitor the spread of identified variants, characterize emerging viral variants, and expand its ability to find new SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Custodial Services continues to clean and disinfect classrooms, common areas, and restrooms daily. However, heavily used restrooms located in buildings that operate 24 hours a day (such as Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons) are cleaned and disinfected four times a day. In addition, fogging is performed nightly between 10:55 p.m. and 6:55 a.m. in Clough Commons, the Campus Recreation Center, and the R. Kirk Landon Learning Center.
We plan for a fully residential experience for Spring 2022. Keeping with pre-Covid-19 course delivery modes, the primary form of course delivery will be in person with the exception of approved fully online and distance graduate programs and a few remote courses, similar to Fall 2019 and prior semester online offerings.
After Arrival in the United States
You might have been exposed to Covid-19 on your travels, whether you traveled by air, land, or sea. You might feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still be infected and spread the virus to others. For this reason, CDC recommends the following:
To protect yourself as well as the community, individuals who have not yet received vaccinations on the FDA or WHO lists are encouraged to get an FDA-authorized vaccination once they arrive on the Georgia Tech campus. These individuals should work with a medical professional to understand the best vaccine option for them and can do so by scheduling an appointment at Georgia Tech’s vaccine clinic.
No. If you have received a vaccine on the WHO-approved list, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend that you receive an additional vaccine from the FDA-authorized list.
