It is the goal of Wiregrass Georgia Technical College to bring students back to our campuses to begin the Fall Semester 2021 fully engaged in the classroom, lab, and clinical environments. The health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and communities will continue to be our utmost priority.

The plan is for all students to return to campus with full capacity class schedules and normal campus operations while continuing increased sanitation measures already in place, contact tracing processes, and encouraging health and safety precaution strategies. The primary goal will be to have students return to campus and maintain the highest quality of instruction and learning while maintaining a safe environment in the academic setting. Wiregrass will follow the CDC & GDPH guidelines while allowing face-to-face instruction in classrooms, labs, and clinical settings.

Students will be expected to comply with any preventive measures outlined by Wiregrass Tech in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control, the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Technical College System of Georgia in response to COVID-19. In addition, students will continue to follow protocols for entrance into classrooms and labs for contact tracing.
