Redeploy Georgetown: COVID-19 Response

Program Overview

Georgetown’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been guided by three priorities: protect the health and safety of members of our community, ensure academic continuity and fulfill our educational and research missions, and protect the livelihoods of members of our community. The Redeploy Georgetown program is an expression of our values in support of those guiding priorities. Redeploy Georgetown is a temporary and essential measure that supports our health and safety efforts on campus while keeping our workforce fully employed. Program participants work together to support the campus community and the university’s efforts to meet the shifting needs of our community while keeping its workforce safe.

Redeploy Georgetown assignments on the Main Campus and Medical Center will end on Friday, May 21, 2021. On Monday, May 24, employees will return to their regularly assigned duties.
