Public Health Committee
Since Spring 2020, Georgia Tech’s Covid-19 Task Force has managed the campus response to the pandemic. Beginning this summer, two new campus committees will take on those responsibilities.
The Covid-19 Operations Team will continue to manage immediate Covid-19 response as Georgia Tech moves from emergency to standard operations. This group will be led by the Office of Emergency Management and include representatives from Administration and Finance, Stamps Health Services, the Covid-19 testing lab, and Institute Communications.
A newly established Public Health Planning Committee will conduct long-term public health response and planning for Covid-19 and other emerging public health threats. This group will include representatives from Stamps Health Services, Health Initiatives, Housing and Residence Life, the Office of the Dean of Students, Infrastructure and Sustainability, Institute Communications, the Covid-19 testing lab, the Georgia Tech Research Institute, Staff Council, faculty, and students.
The work of this group will be a permanent function of Georgia Tech operations. This committee will be responsible for establishing, maintaining, and exercising the Institute’s specific public health and medical plans as part of its broader Emergency Operations Plan.
