Dear UNCG Faculty and Staff,
We have received updates related to previously communicated travel restrictions and events planning from the UNC System to ensure alignment with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services recommendations announced by Governor Cooper on March 12. The new guidelines provide some narrow exceptions to the earlier travel and event restrictions. The highest priority is on participating effectively in the public health effort in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, these exceptions will be limited and we continue to encourage you to reduce or cancel travel and events as previously noted. Details are available in this document.
- All exceptions for faculty and researchers must be pre-approved by the provost with a favorable recommendation from the appropriate dean or director.
- All exceptions for staff and athletics events must be pre-approved by the chancellor with a favorable recommendation from the appropriate vice chancellor or the athletics director.
- All exceptions for students and student organizations must be pre-approved by the provost with a recommendation from the Division of Student Affairs.
As always, if you have questions, please talk to your supervisor, and please continue to monitor our COVID-19 website for ongoing updates.
