Higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19?

Students who fall into one of the CDC categories for being at higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19 may self-identify and request a reasonable alternative educational arrangement. Students who believe that they fall into one of the risk categories must submit a request for an alternative educational agreement. Students must submit medical documentation demonstrating that the student has one of the underlying medical conditions as part of the request. Students may make a request for a reasonable alternative educational arrangement by contacting Disability Services.

If a student requests an alternative educational arrangement based on one of the qualifying risk categories and provides supporting documentation, then Disability Services will engage in an interactive process with the student to determine if a reasonable alternative educational arrangement is available. This process will be similar to the way Disability Services addresses ADA and Section 504 accommodation requests from students with disabilities and/or temporary impairments.

Grizzly Dining

Grizzly Dining continues to rapidly change based on the needs of the community and federal, state and local guidelines. Campus dining locations will be available in a manner that complies with existing CDC and Georgia Department of Health guidelines in place beginning Aug. 3.

To meet these guidelines, GGC will have safety protocols and best practices in place using guidance from ServSafe and The National Restaurant and Georgia Restaurant Associations, which have worked with the latest state-issued executive order on how to re-open. This also includes recommendations from the FDA, the Georgia Department of Health and from all retail brands and our new food service provider, Aladdin.

This layered approach will allow Grizzly Dining to resume operations that provides social distancing while allowing the service to continue. Diners may see a reimagined dining experience in terms of To-Go options, online ordering and contactless meal pick up.
