“COVID-19 testing will be mandatory for all students living in residence halls, along with those taking in-person classes, upon or shortly before returning to campus, and will be available at any time during the semester for those who are symptomatic and for their close contacts. Faculty and staff will have access to testing on demand,” Emory said on its website.
Emory, the state's largest private university, ended in-person instruction in March to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has killed more than 2,300 Georgians. Emory and other colleges and universities have spent months figuring out how to reopen their campuses. Some have said they plan to conduct classes in person while others plan to hold all classes online or offer a mix of classes online and in person.
