We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as the situation concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. We realize there are many questions this morning. Please know that the senior leadership team of the University of Georgia is working diligently to respond to issues as quickly as possible.

We urge you to pay attention to direct communications that you receive from the University of Georgia via ArchNews and to ignore the many rumors or unsubstantiated information that you might receive from other sources. We will communicate with you as soon as we have any updates to share.

Updates also will be posted to www.uga.edu and the University of Georgia coronavirus website, which we encourage you to check regularly.

As we stated last Friday, the situation we are facing marks an unprecedented time for our University and for our state, nation, and world. Although we are in uncharted territory, we want to assure you that one commitment remains first and foremost in our planning: the health, wellbeing, and safety of our campus community.
