Brothers, I know you must be wondering what the University’s plans are for the Fall 2020 semester in light of recent developments regarding COVID-19. The following is sourced from the University of Georgia’s website: 

“Fall Semester classes will begin on August 20. 

 As we have consistently stated, our primary commitment is to the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students. Members of the Medical Oversight Task Force have provided significant leadership in our ongoing planning, and they will continue to provide insight as our plans evolve in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Effective July 15, 2020, the University of Georgia—along with all University System of Georgia (USG) institutions—will require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear an appropriate face covering while inside campus facilities/buildings where six feet social distancing may not always be possible. Face covering use will be in addition to and is not a substitute for social distancing.  

The University has purchased 150,000 cloth face masks—two for every faculty, staff, and student at UGA with extras on hand—and these are now being delivered to individuals and departments.  

Surveillance and screening will be supported by the implementation of a notification application (app) that was recently purchased by UGA, upon the recommendation of the Medical Oversight Task Force after several weeks of research.  

Both the Athens Veterinary Diagnostic Lab and Tifton Veterinary Diagnostic and Investigational Lab are now certified to support human SARS-CoV-2 testing. 

We are actively forging our partnership with the Georgia Department of Public Health for contact tracing, and we anticipate that the GDPH also will play a role in our testing strategy as we move into the next phases of reopening. 

Sixty thousand (60,000) digital thermometers are currently being distributed to all faculty, staff, and students. 

More than 4,000 gallons of hand sanitizer have been ordered and will be available for distribution in classrooms, offices and common areas across campus. 

Over 2.5 million individual sanitizing wipes have been delivered to UGA, with an order for refills to arrive later this month. 

We are doing everything within our power to maintain a healthy and safe environment for all of us to live, work, and learn."
