The 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new illness that was first identified in December 2019 with patients reporting cases of fever and acute respiratory illness. Since that time, other countries, including the U.S., have seen cases of the illness.

UNC Asheville has been closely monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 outbreak, and their potential impacts on the university community. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our highest priority.

Timesheets and Leave Reports - COVID-19

Important Information for all Employees and their Supervisors - March 26, 2020

Last week, UNC Asheville published a UNC Asheville Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information page, including FAQs for Employees about teleworking and leave options.  The UNC System has authorized administrative leave for university employees, including temporary and student employees, for certain COVID-19-related absences.  This provision allows university employees to continue being paid through March 31, 2020, based on time they were already scheduled to work.  We are grateful for this new leave provision to provide some support to impacted UNC Asheville employees.
