Following guidance from the University System of Georgia, everyone at the University of West Georgia is encouraged to wear a mask or face covering while inside campus facilities.

Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to get a vaccine, to continue wearing a face covering, and to continue physically distancing from others when possible. All individuals age 12 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, which UWG administers to students, employees, and employees’ immediate family members who live in employees’ households.

The CDC has indicated that fully vaccinated people have a reduced risk of transmitting COVID-19 to unvaccinated people and can resume indoor and outdoor activities with minimal risk. Adherence to this guidance is based on personal responsibility.
