Grambling State Extends Telework for Remote Employees Through April 30

Governor’s Stay-at-Home Order and Continued Statewide School Closures to Remain in Effect

GRAMBLING, La – April 7, 2020 – Today, Grambling State University announced the extension of its telework policies through April 30 in compliance with Governor John Bel Edwards Stay-at-Home Order.

“We must remain responsive to what we’re observing with the statewide spread of COVID-19 if we are to keep our community safe,” said President Gallot. “So far, following social distancing mandates and other CDC guidelines have been effective in keeping Grambling State students, faculty, and staff free of reported coronavirus cases.”

On March 30, 2020, the University announced the shift of remote capable employees to telework in accordance with the Governor’s initial Stay-at-Home Order. Already, over 2,000 students have departed campus residence, leaving only international students and those with extenuating circumstances – just over 100 students, who need ongoing support from essential functions such as dining, maintenance, and campus security.
