The 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in December 2019 with patients reporting cases of fever and acute respiratory illness. UNC Asheville closely monitors developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and their potential impacts on the university community.

Workplace Expectation

Please continue to conduct a daily self-symptom check before coming to campus to determine whether you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.  If you are sick, stay home, take care of yourself, and contact your medical provider if you believe you may have COVID-19.

As COVID-19 cases in our community and across the state continue to fluctuate, masks are still required in various spaces. UNC Asheville’s latest Health and Safety Guidance, including mask requirements, are available here.  No member of our community should be subject to negative remarks or actions based on their choice to wear or not wear a mask in any situation, provided that they are adhering to the standards and mandates described above.

We continue to strongly encourage everyone in our campus community to get vaccinated.  Each member of our community who receives a vaccine reduces the risk of transmission. Please visit to find a vaccination site near you.
