GCHS athletes may begin summer conditioning on June 8 under new health and safety guidelines

 
The Georgia High School Association (GHSA) has given permission to local school systems to resume summer conditioning programs with restrictions, starting on June 8, 2020. As a GHSA member school, Greene County High School will allow its athletes to begin participating in voluntary summer conditioning workouts on June 8 but will take careful precautions to protect the health and safety of its athletes and athletic staff. Greene County High School has developed an Infectious Disease Plan for COVID-19 in accordance with the latest guidance from the Governor’s Office, the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Georgia High School Association.

A few examples of the many rigorous safety measures outlined in GCHS’s Infectious Disease Plan are:
- temperature screening every day for every athlete, coach, or staff member who will participate in any workout
- disinfecting of the weight room and all workout equipment prior to workouts each day and immediately following each workout session
- readily available hand sanitizer at all times
- no more than 20 athletes and coaches allowed on campus at any given time
- conditioning workouts only; no balls or sport specific equipment may be used until an approved date by the GHSA.
 
As we welcome our athletes back for these summer conditioning workouts, our top priority is the health and safety of our students and staff.
