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).

Winter Weather Update

Posted on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 by Zachary Smith under Archived, Weather Alerts.
Posted 2/20/2020 at 11:00 AM

Dear UNCG Community,

As communicated yesterday, we continue to monitor the potential winter weather that appears to be heading toward our region. As with any weather event, information is always evolving and subject to change.

Guilford County is currently under a Winter Weather Advisory. The latest forecast still has a wide range of possible levels of snow accumulation from 0-4 inches in the Greensboro area. Winter weather is expected to reach our area this afternoon. Some snow accumulation across the state of North Carolina is likely, with heavier impact expected to the east. Temperatures are expected to climb Friday afternoon, and most surface temperatures are above freezing so we do not expect this to be a long-lasting event – but it could impact travel in our area and around the state.

As a result and in the interest of safety for our community, all classes that begin at 2:00 p.m. or later will be canceled today. Additionally, UNCG will enter Condition 1 of the adverse weather policy beginning at 2:00 p.m. today. This includes:

  • Mandatory Staff report per regular schedule. Non-mandatory Staff report per regular schedule or use compensatory time/annual leave/bonus leave or leave without pay. Supervisors may also allow employees to telework or work flexible schedules.
  • Non-mandatory Staff may have 90 days to make up time missed with supervisory approval.
  • Details on time management and leave policy are available here.

The UNCG Women’s Basketball game will proceed tonight as scheduled. Please contact specific units and departments for questions about other events or activities.

The University will communicate by 9:00 p.m. tonight (Thursday) on the status of operations for tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 21).

As with any adverse weather event, please make decisions about travel based on your personal circumstances and safety.  Ensure you pay attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when planning travel. And please make sure you continue to monitor your email and Spartan Alerts for the latest information from UNCG.

Dear UNCG Community,

We are currently monitoring the forecast for the possibility of snow tomorrow and tomorrow night.

There is significant uncertainty about the details, including the amount of precipitation and the timing, as is often the case with winter weather in North Carolina.

This is a challenging forecast, so please pay attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when planning your travel.
As with any adverse weather situation, you should make decisions about travel based on your personal circumstances and safety.
We will communicate via email, social media, and Spartan Alert if University operations or class schedules change.
