Required UNCG Syllabus Language for Fall 2022

As we return for Fall 2022, all students, faculty, and staff and all visitors to campus are required to uphold UNCG’s culture of care by actively engaging in behaviors that limit the spread of COVID-19. While face-coverings are optional in most areas on campus, individuals are encouraged to wear masks. All individuals and visitors to campus are asked to follow the following actions: 

  • Engaging in proper hand-washing hygiene. 
  • Self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Staying home when ill.
  • Complying with directions from health care providers or public health officials to quarantine or isolate if ill or exposed to someone who is ill.
  • Completing a self-report when experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, testing positive for COVID-19, or being identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive.
  • Staying informed about the University’s policies and announcements via the COVID-19 website. 

Students who are ill, quarantining, or isolating should not attend in-person class meetings, but should instead contact their instructor(s) so alternative arrangements for learning and the submission of assignments can be made where possible. 

As we continue to manage COVID-19 on our campus, we are following the lead of the local health department and we will adjust our plans to balance student success, instructional requirements, and the hallmarks of the collegiate experience with the safety and wellbeing of our campus community.
