ACG Community

Health and Safety

Based on the instructions and guidelines given by EODY and Greek Health Care system, ACG is applying all ACG Personal Hygiene & Cleaning Guidelines to secure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community.

Cleaning and Disinfection of ACG Campus

Offices, classrooms, labs, common areas and bathrooms are cleaned with increased frequency using approved chlorine-based cleaning products also appropriate for disinfection.

Everyone returning to campus has the responsibility to continue the Personal Hygiene practices in order to keep the ACG Community healthy. These habits include:
