Face Coverings

The University System of Georgia encourages people to wear masks based on their preference and assessment of personal risk.

Departments that are interested in having masks on hand can order them at no cost while supplies last through UGAmart

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 while supplies last.

Mental Health Resources for Faculty and Staff

We understand the tremendous strain that the COVID-19 pandemic placed on members of our campus community. We want to remind faculty and staff that there are several support systems and tools available through various USG benefits programs.

Help for coping with stress related to the COVID-19 outbreak or other life matters is available through the KEPRO Employee Assistance Plan via phone at 844-243-4440 or  online  (company code is  USGCares). These services are available to all full- and part-time employees and their families and other members of their household.

Student Well-being Resources

CAPS is your go-to, on-campus resource for emotional, social and behavioral-health support. We support students in achieving both academic and personal life goals. CAPS is committed to providing high quality, affordable and confidential services to UGA students and their eligible partners. The benefits of CAPS includes:

  • No out of pockets costs for most services.*
  • In-person appointments with options for telehealth.
  • No session limits; services focus on brief, short-term and goal-focused needs.
  • Expansion of group offerings available both in-person and virtually.
  • Psychiatry services that do not require counseling services.
  • Continued access to urgent services (all you have to do is ask).
  • An amazing case management team to assist with finding off-campus resources when CAPS is not the best match.
  • 24/7 support available by calling CAPS directly at 706-542-2273.
  • TAO Online Support is available for all students at UGA.

Preventative Measures Advisory Board (PMAB)

At the close of the Fall Semester 2021, the Preventative Measures Advisory Board (PMAB) transitioned to an inactive status. Many of its recommendations from the previous two academic years are now standard operating procedures at UGA.  While the PMAB is no longer holding regular meetings or responding directly to requests for assistance in identifying and implementing preventative measures regarding the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19, the PMAB members stand ready to actively engage in providing guidance and recommendations to the University community should conditions change. The Environmental Safety Division remains available to support the University community and will continue to operate and monitor the PMAB Help Desk to answer questions or concerns regarding SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 preventative measures.

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 during the pandemic are now standard operating procedures at UGA.

Student Care & Outreach

Student Care and Outreach is the hub of care and support at UGA, coordinating care and assistance for all students, undergraduate and graduate, by providing individualized assistance and tailored interventions. SCO helps students get connected to the resources that best address their needs, whether they are related to academics, social life, or health and wellness.
