Georgia Southern’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Georgia Southern continues to actively monitor the COVID-19 virus and is committed to ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by:
- Regularly monitoring local spread, impact, and policies related to the COVID-19 virus.
- Offering vaccines. Recognizing that COVID-19 vaccines offer safe, effective protection, we continue to urge all students, faculty, staff and visitors to get vaccinated either on campus or with a local provider.
- Offering COVID-19 testing options on campus. Individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested as soon as possible using one of our convenient, no-cost campus testing options.
- Providing automated support through the process. The university should be informed if you receive positive test results or if you had close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case. For questions, help, or support for your individual situation, please contact the Dean of Students office (if you are a student) or HR (if you are an employee).
USG COVID-19 Guidance
The University System of Georgia (USG) continues to recognize COVID-19 vaccines and boosters offer safe, effective protection and urges all students, faculty, staff and visitors to get vaccinated and/or boosted either on campus or with a local provider.
As USG works closely with the Georgia Department of Public Health to prioritize the health and safety of campus communities, the system encourages people to wear masks based on their preference and assessment of personal risk.
