Winter Weather January 8, 2021

Posted on Thursday, January 7th, 2021 by Zachary Smith under Archived, Weather Alerts.

We continue to monitor the evolving winter weather forecast for our region. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the Triad as a rain and snow mix is forecasted for tonight through Friday evening. Total snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible. Much of the snow will fall during the daytime on Friday, which makes it less likely to accumulate. Wind gusts of 15-25 mph are also possible.  

While impacts are not expected to be severe, we want to ensure you that we are prepared and are focused on the safety of our community. As with any weather event, information is always evolving and subject to change.

Based on the forecasted conditions, the University will operate on Condition 1 of the adverse weather policy, Reduced Operations, beginning at 6 a.m. Friday, Jan. 8 until noon Saturday, Jan. 9. Under Condition 1:

  • Mandatory staff report per regular schedule
  • Non-mandatory staff who are working from campus should discuss options with their supervisor to telework if they are unable to report to campus
  • Non-mandatory staff currently teleworking should maintain their normal work schedule.
  • If teleworking is not feasible, compensatory time/annual leave/bonus leave or leave without pay should be used. With supervisory approval, staff may have 90 days to make up missed time.
  • Details on time management and leave policy are available here.

Employees should be prepared for adverse impacts including loss of power and remain in touch with their supervisors as needed. More information to help you prepare for the winter weather is available here. We will make all operational decisions as quickly and efficiently as possible, always with the safety of the campus community in mind. We will continue to provide updates on conditions as needed.

Spartan Alert: Positive Test for COVID-19

On March 31, UNC Greensboro (UNCG) received notice of a positive test for COVID-19 (2019 novel coronavirus) in a non-residential student. In compliance with requirements of the Clery Act, the University provides this emergency notification to our campus community.

The individual was tested, received appropriate medical care, and, after consultation with health authorities, was discharged directly to self-isolate at their off-campus residence. The individual was last on campus on March 19.  In accordance with privacy laws and University policy, we will not release any additional identifying information about this person.

We are taking all reasonable precautions on our campus and in our community to best promote the health and safety of our campus community.  We are working closely with Guilford County Public Health officials to ensure notifications are made quickly to those who may have come in contact with the student so they can be directed as to their next steps.

It is important that students, faculty, and staff, whether on campus or off, continue to monitor their own health and take appropriate social distancing measures. This is vital to slowing the spread of the virus and protecting the most vulnerable in our community.

Additional safety measures include:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • If you are not feeling well, immediately contact your healthcare provider or UNCG Student Health.

There is now community spread of COVID-19 and the numbers of individuals impacted by the virus will continue to grow. Please monitor the NC Department of Health and Human Services for regular updates.  Also please frequently check our dedicated coronavirus webpage, follow @UNCG social media channels and download the UNCG Mobile app for your phone (see iTunes App store or the Google Play app store).
