Will students be required to wear a face mask or face covering?

Updated April 26, 2022

The University System of Georgia encourages people to wear masks based on their preference and assessment of personal risk.Masks/face coverings are required on campus in two instances:

  • In light of the April 18, 2022, U.S. District Court decision and the subsequent decisions by major transportation providers to no longer require masks on public transit, the University System of Georgia will no longer require use of masks on campus transportation.
  • In alignment with guidance for healthcare facilities, masks will continue to be required for both staff and visitors. This includes Stamps Health Services and satellite clinics.
