Sent on behalf of Interim President / Senior Vice President for Residential, Mr. Danny Dorsel:

Dear GSSM Community,
Please find below some updates for this week.
COVID-19 testing, cases and contract tracing

  • There were no positives cases this week. 
  • Next week we will test the entire student body in preparation for Prom on Saturday, April 24.
  • Next week we will also be switching to the more reliable PCR tests instead of the rapid tests. The PCR test results will be communicated within 24-48 hours. 
  • Thanks again to MUSC for all they are doing for us.

Reminders of safety precautions

  • Please continue to wash your hands.
  • Please complete the REACH survey daily, wear your mask and contact tracing tags, and social distance

Interim update
