COVID-19 Cases at MGA

To keep our community informed about the presence of COVID-19 on MGA campuses, the University will report the number of self-reported positive COVID-19 cases with direct and indirect on-campus impact by updating the table below. Please note:

  • We are only able to report cases that we have been made aware of through self-reporting.
  • Positive cases are counted based on the date the positive case is reported to the University, NOT the date of the positive COVID test; therefore, the below report should not be viewed as an accurate measure of the current status of COVID-19 at MGA. 
  • Cases will be generally reported each Monday. The next update will be on Monday, November 1.
  • 8/16/21 Update: Cumulative cases have been restarted for the new academic year.  Previous case reports are archived on this page for reference.

Privacy

For this public reporting, the University intends to keep the public informed by sharing relevant data while maintaining the privacy of sensitive health information for individual students, faculty and staff.

Contact Tracing and Notification

The University has an identified liaison between MGA and the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) to facilitate information sharing. Any Contact tracing will be conducted by DPH. If an individual is deemed by DPH to have increased risk because of exposure to positive COVID-19 individuals, DPH is responsible for notifying that individual. In some cases, affected individuals may reach out to other individuals personally to make them aware. Notifications of positive tests will continue to be provided on a local level within units at MGA, as warranted.
