Changes in JCSU’s COVID-19 Protocol  

The health and wellness of students (and parents/caretakers) remain utmost priorities at JCSU. Given the wide-spread availability of COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots, JCSU no longer mandates that you have either to enroll. In the same manner, we no longer require students, as well as parents/caretakers, to arrive to GBA with a negative, COVID-19 test. However, you are strongly encouraged to manage your personal health as you see fit (i.e., wearing a mask)

But, you must submit all required health immunizations prior to arriving in August. You can bring your Health Immunization Records with you to GBA. And, if you are not feeling well prior to your arrival to GBA, then please contact us at and we will reschedule you for a later orientation session. We want to keep everyone safe and COVID-19 free! 

If you have specific medical questions, Dr. Marian Jones, our Director of Health and Wellness, is available to assist. She can be reached at or 704.378.1074.
