East Georgia State College is actively monitoring the current situation concerning Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and taking proactive steps to promote the health and safety of everyone in our college community. Each of you is extremely important to us.
As you may have already heard, all faculty, staff and students of University System of Georgia institutions who have recently traveled, or will soon travel, to a location designated as Level 3 or higher by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) must remain at home as they monitor their own health condition for 14 days prior to returning to campus. See the CDC website for a list of those Level 3 locations: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/after-travel-precautions.html .
In order to implement this important step to protect our college community, EGSC is instituting a new Travel Registry effective March 10, 2020. Registration is required if you have recently traveled or plan to travel to any of the Level 3 destinations before the beginning of fall semester 2020.
EGSC also encourages you to voluntarily register any domestic or international travel plans (from now until the beginning of fall semester) as you make those plans. This voluntary registration will enable the college to understand and evaluate risks as the situation develops. In short, knowing your travel plans will enable EGSC to better communicate with you about risks and precautionary measures and to protect our college community.
