Jackets Moving Forward Safely
Stay informed, stay healthy, stay well.
We encourage everyone in the Georgia Tech community to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) recommendations, vaccinate, and wear a mask in campus buildings.
If there is one thing each one of us can do to protect ourselves and keep others safe, it is to get vaccinated. The new vaccines have proven to be extraordinarily effective at preventing severe illness. Getting vaccinated at Georgia Tech is easy and free. If you choose not to get vaccinated, you are encouraged wear a mask in indoor public places, including campus buildings, as recommended by the CDC.
The CDC recently issued new interim guidance recommending 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. To be clear, neither vaccination nor masking in indoor public spaces is required at Georgia Tech.
The free asymptomatic surveillance testing program remains available to all students and employees. You may participate in regular testing even if you have been fully vaccinated. We especially encourage those who have not been vaccinated to get tested weekly.
