Preparation for a safe return underway at CPH

The countdown to the start of the Fall semester has begun, and the College of Public Health has been hard at work over the summer to welcome our faculty, staff and students back as safely and as possible.

And you may be wondering, what can I expect when I come back to the Health Sciences Campus or CPH spaces on the main campus? Below we share some examples on what campus will look like.

But first – in case you missed it, UGA has been sending weekly updates to faculty and staff and to students with need-to-know information about campus operations, instruction, and health and safety protocols. All campus messages are archived on UGA’s coronavirus resource page.
