Important Message from GCCCD

Dear  ,
Our District deeply cares about your health and safety. We are committed to preventive measures and ensuring minimal disruption to our instructional programs and operations should a coronavirus outbreak occur. The District and colleges are closely monitoring the developing situation of the coronavirus  (COVID-19). As of today, there are no current positive cases in San Diego County , but we want to make you aware of our planning and preparation should the situation escalate.

What we are doing:
  • Disinfectants and hygienic wipes are being placed throughout the campuses. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use them.
  • Our custodial staff members are regularly cleaning with a germicidal detergent similar to those used in health-care settings. In addition, they are ramping up to thoroughly deep-clean all surfaces, including floors and door handles, particularly in high-traffic areas.
  • We are developing an education campaign which includes a website page with information about the coronavirus, and a series of videos promoting healthy practices. Be sure to visit the website regularly for updates.
  • We are reviewing attendance policies and other policy exceptions for students who are ill or who are caring for an ill family member.
What you can do:
  • Wash your hands with soap and water. Learn more about how to properly wash your hands.
  • If you feel ill or need to care for someone who is feeling ill, stay home and contact your supervisor.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Reduce your contact when welcoming others, including handshakes, hugs and high fives.
  • Be sure to check travel advisories before taking any international trips. If you are concerned about flu-like symptoms following travel, call your health care provider for advice and share your travel history. Stay home, rest and stay hydrated.
  • If you are not feeling well or have questions, please contact the Grossmont College Health and Wellness Center or the Cuyamaca College Health and Wellness Center .  
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and update you regularly, and we encourage you to visit the COVID19 web page.

Thank you for attending Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges, and be assured that we are working diligently to provide a healthy and safe environment for you to pursue your education.
