The University System of Georgia encourages everyone—whether vaccinated or not—to wear a face covering while inside campus facilities. However, face coverings and social distancing are not required.

Any students who want face coverings can pick them up at no cost at Information Desks in the Tate Student Center and the Miller Learning Center.

The Preventative Measures Advisory Board (PMAB) remains actively engaged this fall, even though it is not meeting twice per week, as it did in the 2020-21 academic year. The group, comprised of campus health and environmental safety experts, continues to monitor the help desk and is providing assistance on an as-needed basis to colleges, schools and units.

PMAB is led by co-chairs Lisa Nolan, Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, and John McCollum, Associate Vice President for Environmental Safety. Many of its recommendations from the previous academic year are now standard operating procedures at UGA.

DawgCheck is a tool to help you check your symptoms and provide guidance to support your health and safety as well as the health and safety of the UGA community. DawgCheck consists of a reporting function which must be used by anyone who has received a positive COVID-19 test result, as well as a symptom checking tool.

You can also view the COVID-19 self-assessment graphic to check your symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions about Campus Information

Quickly find indoor and outdoor study spaces across campus with UGA’s interactive map.

Study spaces at a glance:

Need a spot to log in to your online class while on campus? Consider using one of the Zoom Zones at the Main Library or the Miller Learning Center. The Main Library’s fourth floor study room is perfect for engaging in classes because it’s a place where talking isn’t frowned upon. At the MLC, the east side of the second and third floors (near the stadium) are designated as Zoom Zones. Headphones are encouraged, but feel free to speak up and engage in your online class in those study spots.

The standard sizes advertised and made by FMD are 24”X30”, 36”X30” and 48”X30”.  Some custom installations are also available at the units’ request based on the specific needs of their faculty, staff and students which also determines the type, size, use and location of the plexiglass barriers.

Yes. If you are being quarantined for potential exposure or if you are showing signs of illness, then we ask that you provide that information to our communications center when you contact the police department to request assistance. If possible, we will evaluate if we can provide the requested service remotely, i.e. taking a report over the phone. If not, our officers have the necessary protective equipment and training to safely respond in person to assist you.

Officers at the UGA Police Department have been adhering to social distancing and mask protocols recommended by the CDC. The department has taken significant steps to increase our sanitation standards during this outbreak and officers have been directed not to report to work if they are feeling ill. Our officers have been given guidance to self-quarantine if they have been exposed or if they are showing signs of illness.

No. As part of steps taken to prevent the spread of illness, officers have been instructed to wear protective equipment whenever they deem it is necessary to keep them and our public safe. Our officers have been instructed, when in doubt, to wear protective equipment for their safety. Protective equipment will now be part of a standard response protocol.

High quality CPR includes both chest compressions and breaths using a CPR face shield or CPR mask; however, as in any situation, if you do not have access to a shield or you do not feel comfortable providing breaths, you can provide only chest compressions (also called “Hands Only CPR”). Should someone need CPR, first call 911. Have someone call 911 for you or place your cell phone on speaker mode. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest. You should compress the chest 100 to 120 times per minute. Watch this video to see a demonstration of the Hands Only CPR method.

All individuals on campus are required to follow posted signage. Signage will communicate important information including, but not limited to:

  • Protocol reminders
  • Building entrance and exit points
  • Floor decals denoting six feet of distance for wait areas and lines
  • Occupancy limits in classrooms, conference rooms and other spaces
  • Building-specific instructions, such as for laboratory work

The university will also regularly communicate with campus community members about protocols and other changes through emails, social media posts and updates to the COVID-19 website.
