Last week we informed you that the University of Georgia would begin Phase I of our gradual reopening plan on Monday, June 15. Today we are providing you with the “Return to Campus Guidelines for Faculty and Staff.”

We encourage you to review this document carefully to ensure that you are aware of the many safety precautions being taken by the University, are knowledgeable of the resources available, and understand your own responsibility to abide by the guidelines to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

We want to call your attention to the fact that the University has purchased and will issue two (2) reusable and washable cloth face coverings for each student, staff, and faculty member. These cloth face coverings will be distributed by USPS mail or campus mail (when applicable) to each individual and will include wearing and washing instructions. Distribution may also be provided by supervisors. Please update your home address information in OneUSG Connect to ensure the face coverings are mailed to an accurate address.

  • Choose “OneUSG Connect” from the link on the right side of the page.
  • After you log in, choose “Personal Details.”
  • Click on “Address” and make any necessary changes.

Remember that the primary task of those returning in Phase 1 will be to prepare our campuses for the continued safe return of even more members of the University community in Phase 2, ultimately culminating in the full Phase 3 return of faculty, staff, and students in August for the Fall Semester.

Adherence to these guidelines will be essential to our successful reopening. Each and every one of us will have a critical role to play as we work together to protect the health and safety of every member of the Bulldog Nation.

Thank you for your continued understanding, support, and flexibility.
