COVID-19 Student Resources

The Center for the Study of Human Health is committed to our students' personal health and that of our community.

Based on the current COVID-19 conditions in Atlanta, and in consultation with public health experts on and off campus, Emory University has developed guidelines and resources for a continued safe learning environment. Below are a few of the latest updates:

  • Academic and nonacademic events, activities, and meetings can take place indoors.
  • Indoor gatherings with more than 250 people should follow new guidelines.
    Normal dining operations will resume.
    Indoor dining is allowed for organized events and gatherings; however, outdoor dining, individually boxed meals, and grab-and-go options are encouraged.
  • Masking is optional indoors on Emory's campuses with exceptions.
  • The university may revert to a more restrictive operating status should future conditions warrant.
  • All students, faculty, and staff are required to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 for the spring semester, with exemptions only for those with approved medical reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs (updated December 16, 2021).
  • Review the updated travel guidelines, effective November 1.
  • All students, faculty, and staff are required to be immunized for the flu (updated October 14, 2021).
  • Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine requirements for students, faculty, and staff at Emory.
  • Check our COVID-19 dashboard, which shares reported COVID-19 cases and uploaded vaccination rates among faculty, staff, and students.
