On Monday, Nov. 15, the Guilford County Board of Commissioners voted to lift the county’s indoor mask mandate. UNCG will continue to require face coverings to be worn indoors, and outdoors when 6 feet of distance cannot be maintained. Please continue to help protect our campus community in these final weeks of the fall semester by wearing a face covering.
The University makes this decision for several reasons including, but not limited to:
- CDC guidelines for colleges and universities differ from the general public guidelines and we seek to Shield Our Spartans and keep our community healthy and safe;
- Face coverings remain an effective tool in preventing the spread of COVID-19; and
- Instructors who agreed to teach face-to-face classes, and students who registered to take these classes, did so with the understanding that policies regarding face coverings would be in effect for the semester.
UNC Greensboro will continue to require face coverings in instructional settings for the Spring 2022 semester, regardless of vaccination status, until further notice. We will be reviewing campus-wide face covering requirements for other indoor settings and outdoors and will communicate University plans in early January. Please know we will continue to monitor vaccination rates in the community as well as COVID-19 positivity rates and may adjust requirements if conditions allow.
