Georgia universities preparing for full operations this fall
Several public universities in Georgia are discussing plans for a full return to classes and campus living for the fall semester, anticipating their campuses will be safer for students and employees because of expanded availability to the COVID-19 vaccine.
“(The availability) should allow us to resume normal operations in the Fall Semester, including a return to full in-person instruction, full capacity in our residence halls and dining facilities, and regular operations for other campus services,” University of Georgia officials said in a message Wednesday to students, employees and faculty. “All research and public service operations are also expected to resume regular activities no later than Fall 2021.”
Georgia State University President Mark Becker wrote Wednesday it plans to have “a full complement of in-person classes” and “a fully populated residential community and campuses that provide the usual student services, activities, events and recreational opportunities.”
