COVID 19 PROTOCOLS

The health and safety of our faculty, staff, students and families are of paramount importance to us at GWSI.

Depending on the COVID rates at the time of Institute there may be requirements for social distancing and limitations on large group gatherings. We may also ask for a negative COVID19 test prior to arrival or proof of vaccination. Covid rates are currently very low in our area. Barring the extremely unlikely event of a statewide shutdown forcing us online, our in person Institute will take place as scheduled.

We will continue to monitor and evaluate this situation as we get closer to the event.
