Current Status:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Governor Hogan closed all Maryland schools for the remainder of the school year. The GISW campus is closed. Distance Learning continues.

 

Dealing with the pandemic: Tips from our GISW counselors

 

Prevention Steps

  • Avoid contact with those who are ill, if possible.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60 percent alcohol. Hand sanitizing stations are located in all campus academic, residential and administration buildings.
  • Cough into your sleeve or a tissue, not directly into your hands, and discard tissue immediately.
  • Avoid touching your face both when you are ill and when healthy.
  • Avoid sharing food, utensils, cups, and water bottles.
