Changes to GHC’s Campus Guidelines

Georgia Highlands College is actively working to update our campus guidelines based on recent developments from the CDC and the Georgia Department of Public Health as well as new guidelines to campuses issued by the University System of Georgia on May 13, 2021.

Face Coverings and Social Distancing

Starting now at GHC, fully vaccinated individuals can be on campus without physically distancing or wearing a mask. Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to continue physically distancing from others when possible and wearing a face covering while inside campus facilities. (Classroom spaces will continue to adhere to physically distancing of three feet.)

Vaccination Events

Georgia Highlands College has partnered with West End Pharmacy to provide community vaccine events throughout the summer. The events are open to anyone eligible for the vaccine. Each event will be held in Student Center Building B at GHC’s Cartersville location (5441 Highway 20, NE Cartersville, GA 30121).
