A Message from 662 Marketing and Parents of Georgia - CEO
Dear Parents of Georgia,
As you are all aware, news about the coronavirus is everywhere you turn right now. We here at Parents of Georgia and 662 Marketing Co want you to know that our team has been carefully following the COVID-19 virus and staying on top of the information that we believe to be reliable across all our six markets. The University of Georgia emailed students earlier today with this message. In short the message says:
The University will be will temporarily suspend instruction for two weeks beginning March 16, 2020.
Students who are currently on spring break are strongly encouraged not to return to campus. Students on campus are asked to depart campus by close of business Friday, March 13, 2020, and to remain away from campus until March 29, 2020.
At this time, students are not being asked to move out of their dorms for the remainder of the semester. For students who are unable to leave campus, please establish a mechanism to safely accommodate those students on campus.
Rest assured, we are well in Athens and not panicking. But we do want you and your student(s) to be vigilant about taking necessary precautions in order to make sure your students do not increase risk for exposure. We support all the University and the actions they have enacted to protect the health and well-being of the greater population. We will update you as soon as we have more information as it comes forth.
The impact of a temporary closure hits close to home in to a small college town like Athens. We support the local businesses here and across every college town as they rally from a temporary loss in population and perhaps revenue. I encourage each of you to continue to support your own hometown businesses now more, than ever, as we do in our hometown of Athens. But we will look forward to having you and your student back soon!
From all of us at 662 Marketing Co and Parents of Georgia, we are prayerful that the spread of this virus and the impact it has on our community and student population are minimal. As always, please let us know if we can do anything to assist you or your college student now, or in the future.
