COVID-19 Campus Protocols

COVID-19 Reporting

GRCC is reporting confirmed cases within the active employee and registered student populations for individuals who have physically been on any GRCC property within the past 14 days.  

These numbers will differ from numbers reported by the Kent County Health Department due to reporting time frames and because they report ALL students, including those who have not been on the GRCC campus. They define an "outbreak" as two cases within a week.

  Confirmed Cases (9/21-9/27) Total Fall 2020 Semester Confirmed Cases
Students 12 18
Employees 0 1
