The University of Georgia is continuously updating two resource pages for campus-wide information on the return to campus:

What is the face covering policy for the Business Learning Community?

     It’s the same guidance as the University of Georgia. All students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to wear an appropriate face covering while inside campus buildings where six feet social distancing is not always possible (e.g., in classrooms, hallways, common spaces, restrooms, etc.). Wearing a mask is in addition to and is not a substitute for social distancing. The exceptions are that wearing a face covering is not required when a person is alone in an enclosed office or study room, or in outdoor settings where social distancing requirements are met. Other than people with documented medical accommodations, anyone who is not using a face covering when required will be asked to put one on or leave the area.

What if I forget my mask?

     Go to the Stewart Solutions Center in A108 Moore-Rooker Hall and ask for a disposable face mask.

How often will classrooms and common areas in the Business Learning Community be disinfected?

     High-touch areas like door handles and stair railings will be wiped down during the day by building services staff, and all the buildings will be sanitized with electrostatic sprayers each evening. Sanitizing stations inside each classroom and throughout the hallways will supply students, faculty, and staff with wipes to sanitize areas they touch.

When will I know if my class attendance is face-to-face or online?

     Most Terry classes will be taught this fall with a mix of in-person and online lectures, and some will be fully online. Instructors will distribute a syllabus before classes start and communicate to students how their course will be delivered and their expectations for attendance.

For Terry classes conducted in person, lectures will be recorded and available for students to watch on eLearning Commons.

How will access to graduate student lockers work?

     Correll Hall lockers are reserved for graduate students and cannot be shared. Students provide their own locks and are asked to observe appropriate social distancing in the locker area.

How do I access DawgCheck?

     You can access it directly at Students, faculty and staff will receive regular email reminders with personalized links to access the DawgCheck tools.

Am I eligible for COVID-19 surveillance testing?

     At the recommendation of UGA’s Medical Oversight Task Force, the university began conducting COVID-19 surveillance testing to help identify individuals who do not have COVID-19 symptoms but who may spread the virus to others. The plan calls for collecting up to 300 nose swab samples a day from faculty, staff, and students who volunteer, reaching a total of 24,000 tests by Thanksgiving.

     The University Health Center is conducting the testing at Legion Field. Appointments are by reservation only. Surveillance testing is free, paid for by UGA, and for asymptomatic individuals only. Beginning August 19, the Health Center will provide weekly summaries of the previous week’s surveillance testing data.


What do I do if I receive a positive COVID-19 test result?

     Any student or employee with a positive COVID-19 test result is required to report the test through DawgCheck. Follow the Georgia Department of Public Health’s guidelines on self-quarantining and do not come to campus.
