UNCSA Human Resources has developed resources, guidelines and FAQs regarding COVID-19. Information noted with a lock icon requires you to enter your UNCSA credentials to access.

For more information regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic, see the Overcoming COVID-19 site. As part of the UNCSA community, review and familiarize yourself with our Community Health Standards. Per guidance from the UNC System Office, UNCSA requires any faculty and staff without proof of vaccination to get tested for COVID-19 weekly. If you don't want to have to test weekly, you can voluntarily submit proof of vaccination.

If a staff member has concerns about returning to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic that are related to an underlying health condition, the employee may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation depending on their circumstances. Each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, as governed by applicable laws and policy. Please contact Angela Mahoney in Human Resources to learn more about your options.

Any staff member who would like to request a flexible work arrangement from their direct supervisor should submit the Teleworking Form. Requests not related to a health condition will be considered according to the procedures in UNCSA Regulation 630 for Flexible Work and Telework.

COVID-19 Response Plan for Employees

The COVID-19 Response Plan for Employees (enter your UNCSA credentials to access PDF) explains how UNCSA will respond when an employee exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 in the workplace, at home, and or tests positive/negative for COVID-19. The goal of this plan is to help protect the health and safety of the employee and everyone else in the workplace. Effective execution of the plan requires collaboration, compassion, and attention to detail by employees, supervisors/managers, Human Resources, Facilities, Emergency Operations, and University leadership. If you have any questions or concerns about this plan, please contact Human Resources.

The State Health Plan is waiving the cost of
  • the copay for in-person and virtual PCP visits to screen for COVID-19,
  • COVID-19 test until CARES Act Requirements expires, and
  • treatment for members with COVID-19

CVS Pharmacy is offering drive-through COVID-19 testing at select CVS Pharmacy locations in N.C. You must register in advance to schedule an appointment. This test is also at no cost to State Health Plan members. Details of State Health Plan changes are on the State Health Plan Coronavirus Updates website.
