Can the University System of Georgia faculty create their own mask mandates for their classrooms?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, while The University System of Georgia has opposed both mask and vaccine mandates across their 26 institutions, many USG faculty are concerned about the personal health risk this opens themselves up to in the classroom.
