  4. After any event held at Gogebic, if meeting organizer learns of an attendee testing positive for COVID-19, the organizer will notify all participants and Gogebic Community College, so they make take appropriate actions to handle their exposure. The meeting organizer will NOT disclose the identity of the participant who tested positive, only that there was a positive test.

If GCC cannot supply these items it will be up to the meeting organizer to provide these to comply with the procedures of the space rental.
