The holidays – and the end of the fall semester – are quickly approaching, and in addition to helping keep our campus safe, you also play an important role in keeping your families, friends, and home communities safe. We’d like to share some reminders from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that will make the Thanksgiving holiday safer for everyone.

  • Wear a mask. The CDC says it helps slow the spread of COVID-19.
  • Maintain physical and social distance to Protect Our Pack, and refrain from gathering in large groups – especially indoors.
  • Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds. Clean hands save lives.
  • Monitor your symptoms daily. Feeling sick? Check out our Guidance on COVID-19 Decision Tree for steps you should take.

Your efforts this semester have enabled UWG to offer in-person instruction and services, and starting the spring semester strong depends on how we all embrace responsible behaviors over the holidays. Please stay smart, stay safe, stay healthy, and enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.


Go West, and Go Wolves!
