Health and Safety Guidelines

Our commitment to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff has shaped how we will reopen Emory, and it will remain paramount. We are grateful for public health experts across Emory University who helped us plan. (Updated July 2, 2020.)

We will clearly delineate what we expect from members of our community to maintain health and cleanliness standards including face covering, distancing, cleaning protocols, and general health guidance.

Students, faculty, and staff may not opt out of community expectations for health and safety — everyone must participate for our campus community to stay healthy. Further information on testing and community awareness efforts will be sent to you in the coming weeks. Please refer to the Emory Forward Health and Safety Plan for details.

On-Campus Testing Information

As President Claire E. Sterk and President-elect Gregory L. Fenves outlined, we expect to test all students for COVID-19 either immediately before arrival or shortly after arrival. We will also test symptomatic students and additional persons through a contact-tracing process as part of our overall approach to caring for students and the community.

Testing will happen at locations on the Oxford campus, and details about dates and times will be posted as they become available.
