Central Georgia Technical College continues to actively monitor information related to the global pandemic associated with the novel Coronavirus COVID-19. The College is consistently in contact with the Technical College System of Georgia and Georgia public health officials to ensure adherence to suggested guidelines and operations reflective of guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The safety and well-being of the College community are always our highest priority. We will update this page and its affiliated pages as needed to keep our campus community informed.
On-Campus Vaccine Clinics
Central Georgia Technical College will offer faculty, staff, students, and community members the opportunity to participate in on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinics. These clinics are being offered as a service to the CGTC community and are not mandatory for students nor staff; it is strictly voluntary. Vaccine recipients who are under the age of 18 must have a signed consent form prior to receiving the shot. Please click the link below to access the Consent Form.
Warner Robins Campus
Houston Healthcare provides on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinics throughout the semester at CGTC’s Warner Robins Campus in the Roy H. “Sonny” Watson Health Sciences building. On-campus clinics are open to the public. Any community member may receive a vaccination at no charge with no appointment needed. HHC will offer the Pfizer vaccine for these clinics.
For dates and times, please check your student email for notification or the College’s official social media channels.
PREVENTING THE SPREAD
The best way to prevent infection is to do your best to avoid exposure to this virus. To prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, the CDC recommends everyday preventive actions, including:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Wear face-covering in public, especially when physical distancing is not possible.
- At this time, the CDC has recommended the continued use of masks indoors (guidelines may change based on an individual’s vaccination status).
These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. The CDC also offers specific guidance for travelers.
