Coronavirus (COVID‑19) Information and Resources

UNG’s Response to COVID-19

As we welcome our students back to our campuses to engage in the full higher education experience, UNG continues to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.

While the look of some of our classrooms, programs and services have changed, our faculty and staff commitment to student success remains steadfast. We're all in this together.

COVID-19 Testing for Students

Effective July 15, 2020, the use of face coverings is required by students, faculty, staff, and visitors in UNG buildings and facilities where six feet of social distancing may not be possible. Face covering use will be in addition to and is not a substitute for social distancing. Face coverings are not required in one's own residence hall room or suite, when alone in an enclosed office or study room, or in campus outdoor settings where social distancing requirements are met.

Health & Wellbeing FAQ

What are coronavirus symptoms?

Symptoms of coronavirus are similar to the seasonal flu, which remains a higher risk for our population. This is also the time of year when we typically see a rise in cases of seasonal flu. We encourage everyone on campus to follow the same preventative strategies used during a typical cold and flu season: getting a flu shot, washing hands regularly, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when experiencing symptoms of illness.

How can I self-report my symptoms?

Use the COVID-19 Health Self-Reporting Form to self-report your symptoms, possible exposure, or positive diagnosis.

What preventative measures should I take?

We continue to encourage all members of the university community to follow the same preventative strategies used during a normal cold and flu season: getting a flu shot, washing hands regularly, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when experiencing symptoms of illness. Additionally, UNG’s facilities teams are regularly disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.

What should I do if I am not feeling well?

If a student becomes ill with symptoms related to COVID-19, which include a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, they should stay in place and contact Student Health Services or a medical professional who will help the individual evaluate their condition and determine the next steps. Similarly, faculty or staff should consult their personal healthcare provider. Anyone who is ill should avoid contact with other people (do not call friends to come over, walk around campus, etc.).

Check out the COVID-19 Apple App  -- it provides CDC recommendations on next steps including guidance on social distancing and self-isolating, how to closely monitor symptoms, recommendations on testing, and when to contact a medical provider.

What guidance is available for home quarantine and isolation?
