St. George's University Follows Guidance to Stem the Spread of COVID-19

St. George's University (SGU) has been closely following the global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), including its recent characterization as a pandemic as well as the potential implications it may have on their True Blue Grenada campus and the larger community in Grenada.

While at this time there are no confirmed COVID-19 cases in Grenada, SGU has decided to encourage all international students on the Grenada campus to return home with the situation being re-evaluated by April 15th. Students will only return to Grenada when the global pandemic has stabilized. They will be in close coordination with the Ministry of Health regarding the timing of students' return. Some students and faculty, both local and international, will remain in Grenada and SGU's campus will remain open for all who continue to reside there, with full use of campus facilities. This approach is consistent with recommendations for Institutions of Higher Education from public health officials, and mirrors the actions taken by many universities around the globe to limit the density of large populations on their campuses.  The plan is for only small groups to meet face to face, with appropriate social distancing, with the further development and implementation of online education to reduce the need for face to face classroom gathering.

The university will continue to operate the campus in Grenada with full staffing, with no change to current employment status, pay or benefits.  

To date, no member of the university community has contracted COVID-19.
