The health and safety of our entire campus community is our top priority and we will continue to follow the guidance provided by the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the University System of Georgia.
KSU offers COVID-19 testing on campus. Please click here for more information on testing locations and times. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home from school or work and schedule a test.
All faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to receive a COVID-19 vaccine

Face Coverings & Social Distancing
Based on guidance from the University System of Georgia (USG), all vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals are encouraged to wear a face covering while inside campus facilities. Unvaccinated individuals are also strongly encouraged to continue to socially distance while inside campus facilities, when possible.
As long as they remain asymptomatic, fully vaccinated individuals do not have to quarantine following a known exposure to COVID-19. If you have been fully vaccinated and are identified by the KSU COVID Response Center as a close contact to a confirmed case, please email proof of your vaccination to firstname.lastname@example.org to avoid the quarantine requirement. Additionally, vaccinated individuals who are identified as close contacts are advised to take precautions and follow Department of Public Health guidance, which can be found here.

We have established a response team of trained professionals to respond to confirmed COVID-19 cases on campus.
In partnership with Wellstar Health System, KSU began administering vaccines for all faculty, staff and students in January 2021 and will continue to offer vaccines and booster doses to the campus community at no cost. In addition to the on-campus option, members of the community have received vaccinations at the many off-campus sites available through the state. Therefore, it is impossible for the University to know how many people have been vaccinated. However, the University has and will continue to encourage faculty, staff and students to receive the vaccine on campus or through other providers.
Students, faculty and staff should not be asked about their vaccine status, and students should not be segregated in a classroom or from other instructor-student interactions (office hours, group work, field trips, labs, etc.) based on their vaccination status.
Good mental health and wellbeing are the foundation for your success in college. Being proactive, advocating for what you need and taking steps to build your personal resiliency is easier than ever. Wellbeing@KSU is brought to you by the Division of Student Affairs.
