COVID-19 Preparedness and Response

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Gerstell Academy is closely following the news and monitoring advice from President Trump, Governor Hogan, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Maryland Department of Health regarding social distancing, self-quarantines, and other measures designed to slow (and hopefully halt) the spread of COVID-19 virus outbreak. We encourage all Gerstell community members to carefully follow the advice of these experts.

Education Continuity Plan

Excerpt from the most recent communication from our President:

“COVID-19 has forced us to consider many new and different scenarios regarding our plans to re-open on-campus school in the fall. The safety of our Gerstell Academy community is our absolute top priority. Our Facilities team and entire staff are working together to prepare our campus for a return to operations on campus. In order to plan activities on campus, we have been in communication with the Maryland Department of Health for required plans and approvals and are continuously following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Carroll County Health Department, and other state and national authorities.”
