COVID-19 and GGC's Education Outreach

During this time of uncertainty regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), our focus is on the health and well-being of you, your students and our instructors.
With the closure of all SC schools through April 30, all outreach trips and visits for March and April have been canceled.

*Note, GGC will be celebrating DNA Day virtually during the month of April on our social media channels. Follow our Facebook and Twitter pages all month long for fun facts and activities you can share with your students!

GGC information regarding this virus can be found here.

Once school resumes, please note the following:
  • If you are making a field trip to the Center, please do not allow any student or chaperone with symptoms of influenza, COVID-19, or other contagious illnesses to attend.
  • If the Mobile Lab or Van is scheduled to visit your school, please notify us in advance of any illness concerns in your school. In order to protect the health of our instructors and your students and staff, cancellations may become necessary. If we cancel a trip, we will do our very best to reschedule.
We are monitoring reports from around the state, particularly as they involve schools and school districts. If we believe it to be in the best interest of our employees to cancel a trip, we will contact you with as much notice as possible.
 
Thank you for supporting our program, and we appreciate your understanding with these policies, as we all are watching developments,
