COVID-19 Safety Protocols - UGA Performing Arts Center

COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Face masks should be worn based on preference and assessment of personal risk.

The University System of Georgia (USG) continues to recognize COVID-19 vaccines and boosters offer safe, effective protection and urges all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to get vaccinated and/or boosted either on campus or with a local provider. As USG works closely with the Georgia Department of Public Health to prioritize the health and safety of campus communities, the system encourages people to wear masks based on their preference and assessment of personal risk.


Touchless faucets and soap dispensers have been installed in all restrooms.

Hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout the building.

The Performing Arts Center’s air conditioning systems operate continuously. All systems utilize 2” MERV 6 pre-filters and MERV 13 bag filters. The building units are equipped with an air side economizer function that increases ventilation to provide free cooling when ambient weather conditions are appropriate.  The units are scheduled to operate continuously, consistent with FMD’s COVID-19 response plan. The air change rate for Hodgson Concert Hall brings in approximately 30% more fresh air ventilation than is required by present code.

Do not enter the Performing Arts Center if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, or had contact with a person that has or is suspected to have COVID-19 within the past fourteen (14) days.
