MILLEDGEVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Georgia Military College confirms students at its prep school tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a statement from GMC, once school officials were made aware of the cases, their health services team immediately notified all faculty members, parents of students who are in the same grade levels as the students who tested positive, and people who were potentially exposed to the virus.

The statement goes on to say that all GMC Prep School facilities have undergone deep cleaning and disinfecting.

Any student or faculty member who tests positive for COVID-19 must quarantine and can return after 10 days or if they no longer exhibit symptoms. Georgia Military College’s policy says that any GMC family member is required to stay home if they have a fever or show symptoms of COVID-19.
