UNCG's Shield our Spartans graphic

To address the COVID-19 pandemic needs of UNC Greensboro students, faculty, staff, and community, the University has called upon a variety of key management teams. Listed here are the various teams and task forces from across UNCG that are working daily to navigate the strategic, operational, and academic challenges and decisions associated with navigating the COVID-19 pandemic. 

COVID-19 Operational Group

The COVID-19 Operational Group was created in response to the pandemic in order to coordinate and address operational concerns at UNCG as it relates to COVID-19 preparedness, response, and recovery. The team is composed of a very diverse group of existing Emergency Planning and Response Team (EPART) members, and other ad hoc members who have an operational component in pandemic planning and response efforts. 

A smaller subset of this group began meeting on February 5, 2020. As the situation grew, the entire EPART team was activated on March 4, 2020. As time progressed and the incident became a pandemic, the University added ad hoc members to this team in order to meet specific needs of the pandemic response. The group has met weekly since March 4. 

The COVID-19 Operational Group was charged with coordinating and activating the needs of the University in response to federal, state, local, and UNC System mandates and guidance. This group was also responsible for creating, reviewing, and implementing the UNCG COVID-19 Plan for Returning to Normal Operations. This group consists of approximately 100 individuals from across campus.
