This two page visual reference was for members of the UGA School of Law community. It was intended to answer questions and provide clear guidance to faculty and staff as they prepared to return to campus in August 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.


The University of Georgia School of Law created many working groups to prepare key signage and other resources related to COVID-19 for the law school community as they prepared to reopen the facility and resume hybrid classes for Fall 2020. A two page infographic-style guide was created and distributed to faculty and staff in August 2020 under advisement from Dean Peter B. Rutledge in consultation with members of UGA's College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Population Health and the AU/UGA Medical Partnership. UGA Law Librarian Rachel Evans assisted with the graphic design aspect of this resource.

An email with similar messaging emphasizing the "culture of shared responsibility" and the "3 W's" was circulated by Dean Rutledge on July 30, 2020. This email is attached as an additional file below. The email linked to a video where members of the law school community submitted clips of reassurance related to this shared responsibility.
