Protests at UGA and other schools, calling for COVID mandates

Clark Atlanta goes virtual

The demonstrations that began Monday are scheduled to continue through the week on campuses in Athens and around the state: faculty and staff at the University of Georgia and other schools are protesting in favor of mask and coronavirus vaccine mandates. There was a Monday counter-demonstration from those opposed to mandates, a protest outside UGA’s Tate Student Center.

It is another coronavirus concession in Atlanta: Clark Atlanta University classes will switch to a remote instruction model through at least Friday to make time for the strengthening COVID 19 safety protocols.

Savannah adds incentives for coronavirus vaccinations: $500 bonuses for Savannah-Chatham County government employees who get their vaccine shots.

The latest data from state health officials suggest the summer spike in coronavirus cases might have hit its peak in Georgia.
