Task Force

Oglethorpe's COVID-19 Task Force by subcommittee

Update as of August 5, 2020

President Ladany announces that remote learning will continue for Fall 2020


Planning will continue to be a work in progress as public health conditions and guidance change on a near-daily basis. This website is intended to provide transparency into the work of the task force and share preliminary ideas and plans with the entire community and should be considered a “working document”. As plans and policies are finalized, this site will be updated to reflect that change.
