As you are aware, the Governor has declared a public health state of emergency as our state addresses the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With the rapidly changing nature of this situation and with uncertainty as to how long we might be impacted by COVID-19, the State Office of Vital Records has decided to cancel our previously scheduled, Spring Registrar Face to Face Meetings. The health, well-being, and safety of our workforce and stakeholders is extremely important to us.
DPH’s mission, relevant to this COVID-19 event, places us in a rather unique position from other state agencies. As the leading public health agency for the state of Georgia, trainings offered to the local/county vital records offices are essential to the constituents you serve. The State Office of Vital Records will continue to focus on continuing our essential services in a modified format.
As an alternative, we will deliver our Spring Registrar Meeting topics as a series of online webinars. You will receive additional communication regarding topics, dates and times in the coming weeks.
