Traveling to Lanier Islands

On-site Preparedness Plan

  • While the risk remains low at this time, we cannot ensure a virus-free environment.
  • GTS2020 will be a handshake-free meeting. We recommend the elbow tap.
  • The closest medical facility is Northeast Georgia Health System, Inc., 743 Spring Street Gainesville, GA 30501, (770) 219-9000.
  • We will provide extra medical support as needed on site.
  • Should screening reveal an elevated risk for an attendee, the person will be isolated immediately to prevent exposure to conference participants.

Sanitation Measures

  • Lanier Islands is currently following the guidelines set forth by the CDC on prevention of spread of COVID-19 and are sanitizing all common spaces at frequent and regular intervals with appropriate sanitizing agents.
  • There will be an increased number of hand sanitation stations available in the Legacy Lodge, providing alcohol-based hand sanitizer for all attendees and staff.
  • Disposable, disinfectant wipes will be provided so commonly used surfaces (e.g., doorknobs, keyboards, presentation materials, desk surfaces, etc.) can be routinely sanitized.

Situation Monitoring

  • GTS2020 staff is communicating on a regular basis with key conference stakeholders to evaluate any risk in the host city.
  • GTS2020 is also actively monitoring the CDC and Georgia Department of Public Health updates for further information.
