AllOnGeorgia has obtained the following email from the University System of Georgia and Georgia Southern University.
Dear GS Faculty, Staff and Students:
Please see the update below from the University System of Georgia. Per the USG’s direction, the Georgia Southern University will temporarily suspend instruction for two weeks beginning March 16, 2020:
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, all University System of Georgia institutions will temporarily suspend instruction for two weeks to allow time for USG institutions to test their business continuity plans and online instruction modules and for state officials to continue to assess the current situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) in Georgia.
Students who are currently on spring break are strongly encouraged not to return to campus. Students on campus are asked to depart campus by close of business Friday, March 13, 2020, and to remain away from campus until March 29, 2020. At this time, students are not being asked to move out of their dorms for the remainder of the semester. For students who are unable to leave campus, please establish a mechanism to safely accommodate those students on campus.
