03-20-2020 3:15 PM Community Alert Health and Exposure Update: First confirmed case of COVID-19 – March 20, 2020:

Out of an abundance of caution, Georgia Gwinnett College is making the campus community aware of the following situation related to COVID-19:

A student assistant in the Academic Enhancement Center has reported to Georgia Gwinnett College testing positive for COVID-19. The individual has reported last being on campus on March 12. The individual has been advised to self-isolate at home and is not in the Lawrenceville area.

Health officials continue to take precautionary measures to quickly identify cases of COVID-19 and take appropriate public health action to reduce its spread and protect the general public in identifying potential contacts.

Ensuring the anonymity of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 is critical. If you are aware of their identities, please respect their privacy so they can focus completely on their health.

While we understand the concerns and fear around COVID-19, it is extremely important to stay calm and maintain a close eye on your health and any symptoms that may arise. The symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. Most cases of COVID-19 are mild with symptoms similar to a cold.

  • Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room.
  • Tell your doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Avoid contact with others.

We each have a responsibility to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our community. To help prevent the spread of coronavirus, take appropriate measures, including:

  • Adhere to social distancing practices and CDC guidance regarding groups and group activity.
  • Wash hands regularly.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Be responsible and courteous to others and stay home if you are sick or experiencing symptoms.
  • Respect personal space when greeting others and during conversations.
  • Be mindful of those in high-risk populations such as those with underlying health conditions and the elderly.
  • Follow CDC and DPH guidance on personal and business travel to avoid increasing your risk and that of others.

Access the full list of preventive measures and other important information on the GGC Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage. Do your part to stay informed about matters at the college and resources available to you by visiting the college’s Public Health FAQ page,  which provides information in a central location. The page will continue to evolve, and I encourage you to check back often.
