Health Precautions

GGC is committed to ensuring that student resident facilities minimize the risk of exposure to infectious diseases. Some of the proactive measures include the following:

  • Masks required on campus – all faculty, staff, students and visitors are required to wear an appropriate face covering while inside campus facilities/buildings where six feet social distancing may not always be possible. Face covering use is in addition to and is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Face coverings are not required in one’s dorm room or suite, when alone in an enclosed office or study room, or in campus outdoor settings where social distancing requirements are met.
  • Suite-style living – each student resident will have a private bedroom and bathroom shared with only one other suitemate. (This does not mean only two people per suite.) Suite sizes are 12, 8, 6, 4, 3 and 2 bedrooms.
  • Limited access – only student residents and staff in housing are allowed in the residence hall with no visitors being admitted. Only residents will be allowed in their suite. Residents will NOT be allowed to visit in other suites.
  • Common space cleaning is based on CDC guidelines.
  • Touchless hand sanitizers are located at every entrance.
  • Health Services is located on-campus in the Health and Sciences Building (Building H).
