FRC Statement on Covid-19 

The Covid-19 global pandemic has upended our lives in many ways, from cancelled events and trips to the loss of employment, and even illness and loss of life. As a residential community, FRC will follow best practices per the CDC and the University System of Georgia. This will entail moving some events outside, shifting toward service projects we can reach more accessibly, and developing a hybrid online dimension to some activities. Further, recognizing that the effects of this pandemic have fallen disproportionately on persons of color, working class families, and those with increased risk factors, we pledge to support and accommodate all our members as we move forward. Challenges lie ahead, but we will seek to meet them in the same spirit of community and family that guides FRC.
