Warner Robins, Ga.—In response to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s recent decision to offer administrative leave to encourage state employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, CGTC campuses and instructional sites will suspend classes and operate on a limited basis on Friday, September 3. The College’s Child Development Center locations will remain open for families and children and customized business and industry training courses will continue as scheduled.
Most CGTC students will have the day off as well. All classes on CGTC’s campuses in Macon, Milledgeville, and Warner Robins and instructional sites including Hawkinsville, Roberta, Forsyth, Eatonton, and Fort Valley will be canceled for Friday, September 3. The CGTC Aerospace Sustainment Training Center at Middle Georgia Regional Airport and the Georgia VECTR Center in Warner Robins will also be closed, except for Commercial Truck Driving. Students should not report to these locations.
However, CGTC dual enrollment students who take courses at off-campus locations, including high schools and career academies, should still report to class.
The Governor’s announcement granting administrative leave for many Georgia state employees is intended to encourage those who have yet received the COVID-19 vaccine to do so. For those who have already received the vaccine, the closure signifies a thank you to those employees.
CGTC will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, September 7 following the Labor Day holiday. CGTC’s Fall Second Session begins October 12. Students can still enroll for Fall Session 2 and receive an application fee waiver and placement test waiver, along with aid options to help greatly reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket costs for tuition and fees.
