The latest from UNC Greensboro

Shield our Spartans graphic reversed

The information below represents UNC Greensboro students, faculty, staff, and subcontractors who meet the following conditions:

  • were diagnosed with a confirmed case of COVID-19 through testing
  • were present on campus within the two weeks prior to testing positive, and
  • could have presented a risk of exposure to other members of the University community.

All persons determined to have exposure risk related to a confirmed case are formally contacted individually and provided information on the appropriate next steps.

Please note: The charts reflecting positive COVID-19 cases do not include individuals who may have confirmed cases but have not reported to campus in the past 14 days or individuals who are self-quarantining without a confirmed diagnosis. Not all cases are active. Individuals who are sick are advised to remain in isolation, receive proper medical care, and directed on appropriate next steps.

This information is based on cases reported to the University and verified by Student Health Services and UNCG Human Resources.

Quarantine vs. Isolation

Quarantine keeps someone who was in close contact with a person who has tested positive COVID-19 away from others.

Isolation keeps someone who has symptoms and/or tested positive (with or without symptoms) away from others, even others in their home.

For more information on Quarantine vs. Isolation view this flyer.

We have established 148 rooms appropriate for isolation or quarantine as needed on campus. Listed below you can see the present utilization.

What is a “cluster of cases”?

A “cluster” is defined by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as five or more cases that are deemed close in location. “Location” is defined as a single residential hall or dwelling.

Clusters also tend to involve a level of close contact between impacted individuals and traceable to a single index case.

To date there have been no identified clusters on UNCG campus.

Privacy Statement

To protect individuals’ private health information, UNCG will not identify students or employees diagnosed with COVID-19. Additionally, as required, the University follows confidentiality guidelines and directives set forth in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

UNCG is working closely with local health department officials to ensure notifications are made quickly to those who may have come in contact with individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 so they can be directed as to their next steps. We are grateful for the health department’s partnership and expertise in this situation.
