Covid-19 Updates

The latest from UNC Greensboro

Students interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine should contact Student Health Services at 336.334.5340.

Vaccination is the single most effective tool we have in fighting the pandemic. If you have not yet been vaccinated, UNCG strongly encourages you to do so. Students, staff, and faculty can get a vaccine at Student Health Services for free and they are also widely available in the community.

You are fully vaccinated once you have 1) received two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine; and 2) it has been at least two weeks since you received your final dose.

Getting vaccinated does not guarantee that you won’t get the virus, but it does provide very strong protection against severe illness, hospitalization, and death if you do get the virus.

Frequently Asked Questions about the COVID-19 Vaccines


If you develop COVID-19 symptoms, or are identified as a close contact of someone who has test positive, it is important that you complete the self-report form. This is true for all members of our community, whether or not you have been vaccinated. The next steps will differ for those who are fully vaccinated and those who are not. A member of the Case Management Team will be in touch soon after you complete the form.

Guidance for Individuals Who Are Fully Vaccinated

When you complete the self-report form you can indicate that you have been vaccinated and upload a copy of your documentation.

If you develop symptoms

  • Contact your health care provider (or Student Health Services if you are a student) to determine whether you need to be tested. Self-isolate while you wait for your results.
  • If you test positive, follow isolation protocol.
  • If you test negative, but your symptoms get worse, contact your health care provider.

If you are exposed to the virus

  • If you indicate you have been vaccinated but do not upload documentation (a medical document or letter; or vaccination card), a member of Human Resources (for staff), Faculty Personnel Services (for faculty), or Student Health Services (for students) will contact you to ask for documentation.
  • The Case Management Team will help you determine whether your exposure meets the criteria to be classified as a close contact.
  • If you provide documentation of vaccination and do not have symptoms, you do not have to quarantine, but you should continue to monitor yourself for symptoms for 14 days after exposure.
