Monday, April 27, 2020 3:02 PM

Based on Gov. Cooperโ€™s last press release, NC is currently in Phase One with the Stay at Home order in effect until May 8th. Below is our current phased plan to reopen campus based on current recommendations. If those recommendations change, this plan may change as well.

During Phase One (After May 8)

  • Teleworking continues.
  • Allow for limited tours of prospective students (less than 10)  touring the outside of buildings on campus. Students and parents can enter the Welcome Center only. Those invited to campus will be asked to wear protective face masks and we will have some on hand to provide if needed. Social distancing will be enforced.
  • We will lessen some of the restrictions on campus for students. This communication will come from the VIRT team.
  • Continue enhanced cleaning of all buildings.


During Phase Two (Starting May 26)

  • On Tuesday, May 26th, teleworking comes to an end and all employees should report to work as normally scheduled, unless you are still considered in the vulnerable population category. Those individuals can work with their managers and HR regarding telework.
  • Continue method above for tours but allow participants to tour any building except residence halls. Protective face masks for visitors are optional.
  • Remove most restrictions on campus. This communication will come from the VIRT team.
  • Continue enhanced cleaning of all buildings.

During Phase Three (Starting June 22)

  • Resume all normal operations while still practicing some social distancing, proper hygiene, and common sense practices if you are showing any symptoms.
  • Continue enhanced cleaning of all buildings.
