Safety Protocols

Every Hoya, Everywhere let’s do our part to contain the spread of COVID-19. Please do not socialize or gather before or/and after class, either in the classroom or in adjacent areas outside the classroom. Such social gatherings contribute to a transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19 and can endanger members of our community. Please read and follow the safety protocols below.

  • Every member of the community, regardless of vaccination status, must follow all protocols for public safety, including
    • wearing masks – Masks must be worn at all times. Students who are on-campus residents will receive two reusable cloth masks in their welcome kit issued during move-in. Off-campus students may pick up a welcome kit at Healey Family Student Center information desk during testing hours of operations
    • completing a COVID-19 Daily Check-in survey until such a time when the District informs the University that this is no longer the case.

Building access is based on compliance with testing and daily symptom attestation. Upon entering each building, you will be required to show your Green GU360 badge to the public health screeners at entrance points. Please see instructions for Performing the COVID-19 Daily Check-in and instructions for Getting and Using Your Green GU360 Building Access Badge. 

Classroom furniture will be arranged to provide for physical distancing of at least six feet between individuals. Classrooms with more than one entry and exit will have separate entries and exits clearly marked. The classroom to which you have been assigned will have technology allowing for learning in HyFlex or hybrid manner. Students, when attending in-person, are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet to further enhance engagement with their remote classmates. We recommend you test your internet access, Zoom capability, and computer speakers prior to the first day of class.

The University has convened a Working Group of representatives from across the Georgetown community to determine how the COVID vaccines can be distributed to members of our community. More information will be provided in the coming weeks. If you are given an opportunity to receive one of the vaccines through outside sources, please do so. Please review the University FAQs related to the COVID Vaccines

We continue to update the University website for matters related to COVID. Please review regularly for any changes.
