Gwinnett County Public Schools is working closely with our local and state health partners as we monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID-19 is a respiratory illness with symptoms that include shortness of breath, fever, and cough.
To date, the Georgia Department of Public Health reports that there are no confirmed cases in Georgia and the risk of COVID-19 for Georgians is low at this time. While this information is reassuring, we understand that there are concerns about this new virus. Additionally, the recent announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encouraging communities to prepare for the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. has raised new questions.
Please see the Gwinnett Department of Public Health Bulletin and GCPS letter as the official correspondence from the district.
