The COVID Response team recommended an update to the Phased Return to Campus plan to reflect changes allowed under Exec Order 2020-77 and the Provost’s decision to allow certain School of Workforce Development and Job Training programs that were suspended during winter 2020 to complete during summer 2020.

This team is developing the protocols and guidelines for a safe re-opening of our campus for employees and students.  Campus-wide signage in being developed to promote social distancing, use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and hygiene practices.  A Return to Campus Employee Resource Guide that outlines the GRCC COVID Response plan and employee expectations is being developed will be shared with all employees by June 1. This guide will further outline the safety protocols being implemented across campus to keep our community safe. 

Safety protocol for employees returning to campus June 1
