UNCSA Together - Community health standards

Everyone at UNCSA must commit to doing their part to protect our campus community by following commonly recognized guidelines for limiting the spread of COVID-19. We expect all students, faculty and staff to show care for our campus community by adhering to the following guidelines. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in disciplinary action.

Wear a Mask

Everyone on campus is required to wear a mask or face covering at all times. If wearing a mask impedes your job or classwork, extra protective precautions will need to be taken. Masks or face coverings must comply with the UNCSA face-covering guidance.

Wait 6 Feet Apart

Everyone on campus must adhere to social distancing requirements. If otherwise officially warranted by your job, extra protective precautions will need to be taken. A mask is not a substitute for social distancing. Social distancing requirements include:

  • Staying at least 6 feet from other people at all times (especially when eating).
  • Following posted maximum space capacity signs where applicable.
  • Not participating in in-person gatherings.
  • Staying out of crowded places.

Wash Your Hands

Everyone on campus must wash their hands frequently throughout the day (at least 20 seconds with soap and water) and use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout campus.

Wipe Down Surfaces

Staff, faculty and students are responsible for wiping down high-touch surfaces before and after use. (e.g., copiers, printers, phones, A/V  equipment desks and tables, light switches, doorknobs, etc.). Wipes are available across campus.

Wake Up and Screen

All faculty, staff and students are required to perform a Daily COVID-19 self-screening. The daily screening assesses COVID-19 related symptoms not related to another medical condition and helps identify possible cases before exposing others. Anyone exhibiting any symptoms should stay home and immediately self-isolate. They should not attend class or go to work.

Willingly Report Exposure and Positive Cases 

Every member of the UNCSA community must participate in contact tracing, including contact tracing by the Forsyth Public Health Department. This is an essential process for protecting individuals who may have been exposed and protecting our campus from further spread.

Students are required to immediately notify Health Services if they have received a positive COVID-19 test from an outside provider so that contact tracing can be conducted. Faculty and staff are required to notify their supervisor of a positive COVID-19 test if they have been on campus within 14 days of the test.
