A group of students, instructors and Athens residents demanding COVID-19 transparency and action from the University of Georgia gathered at the Arch on Friday, Sept. 19, 2020.
Protesters read a list of demands which included daily posting of test results, improvement of COVID-19 precautions and expansion of testing capability. The group also demanded "the public health risk of football season be critically assessed by an organization independent of the university athletic association."
Speakers included Ari Mbunwe, Mykeisha Ross, Joe Fu and Jonathan Wallace amongst others.
