Shield Our Spartans icon

The information below represents UNC Greensboro students, faculty, staff, and subcontractors who meet the following conditions:

  • were diagnosed with a confirmed case of COVID-19 through testing
  • were present on campus within the two weeks prior to testing positive, and
  • could have presented a risk of exposure to other members of the University community.

All persons determined to have exposure risk related to a confirmed case are formally contacted individually and provided information on the appropriate next steps.

Please note: The charts reflecting positive COVID-19 cases do not include individuals who may have confirmed cases but have not reported to campus in the past 14 days or individuals who are self-quarantining without a confirmed diagnosis. Not all cases are active. Individuals who are sick are advised to remain in isolation, receive proper medical care, and directed on appropriate next steps.

This information is based on cases reported to the University and verified by Student Health Services and UNCG Human Resources.
