UGA Center for Food Safety
Month in Review
May 2021
A return to normal

After a long and often challenging year, a light appeared at the end of the Covid tunnel last month when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their guidance for fully vaccinated individuals. On May 13, the CDC announced that those who have received the coronavirus vaccine no longer need to wear facemasks or social distance. The following day, the University of Georgia released a letter outlining guidelines for a return to campus based on the CDC's change in guidance.  

"We are excited to envision the vibrancy of campus life as we resume traditional student activities and interaction in classrooms, labs, concert halls and athletic venus," the letter reads. 

Over Summer 2021, UGA will begin a transition period of ending pandemic-related arrangements such as teleworking and will resume pre-pandemic operations by Fall Semester 2021.
