COVID-19 Information

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, Governor’s has operated under two primary values: protecting the health of all members of our community and providing our students with the finest possible educational experience. This year, we plan to have as normal a school year as possible including in-person classes and afternoon programs, dorms open at full capacity, and community-building activities throughout the week.

Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year and continuing into the 2021-2022 school, we have sent email updates each time a student or employee has tested positive for COVID-19. Given the virus' presence in our community for almost two years, we have decided to move all regular COVID-19 testing and positive case updates to this webpage. Please refer to this page as regularly as you would like for updates.
