Grossmont, Cuyamaca colleges closed to students and public

As the coronavirus situation remains in a state of flux, effective today, March 16, 2020, Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges are now closed to students and the public until further notice.

All instructional activities, office hours and labs will take place online or through another remote delivery to the fullest extent possible. Students are advised to follow directives provided by their instructors and to regularly check the college website and emails to keep apprised by the latest developments.

The district’s Governing Board meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, March 17, was also cancelled.

Employees at the campuses were advised to prepare themselves to work remotely as feasible. Those in high-risk categories have been instructed to leave their workplaces today to begin working remotely. The high- risk groups include all employees who are sick or experiencing symptoms, individuals who may have come in contact with others who could have been exposed, and those over the age of 65.

“We understand how difficult the coronavirus outbreak has been for everyone and the disruption this pandemic has caused in people’s lives” said Chancellor Lynn Ceresino Neault. “We are doing our best to respond quickly but carefully to this evolving situation.”
