Coronavirus Resource center

The UNC System and its constituent institutions are working closely with local, state, and federal health authorities to monitor developments, coordinate and share information, and provide guidance regarding COVID-19. Concern for the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and University partners is foremost in mind. We’ve created this site to provide easy access to information about COVID-19, our response, and available resources.

We understand this is a stressful time for many in our community, and we are taking the necessary steps to help reduce the spread of the virus. We appreciate our entire UNC System community’s participation in helping us reduce the spread. Please check back here for regular updates and closely follow guidance from health professionals and individual institution leaders.
