The University of Georgia continues to work closely with the University Health Center, the University System of Georgia, and local and state public health officials to monitor COVID-19. The top priority in these uncertain times remains the health, safety and wellbeing of all members of our campus community.
The University has moved all classes and exams online after the Thanksgiving Break, and will continue to offer free surveillance testing through December 18 at Legion Field, in addition to providing regular campus operations and student life services. The University Health Center also will continue to offer testing for students who have symptoms. During the online period following Thanksgiving, weekly test results will be posted each Wednesday on the UHC website through the end of the term on December 23. Upon receiving a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, members of the UGA community are required to report results through DawgCheck, even while not on campus.
