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.
