UNC employee tests presumptively positive for COVID-19


A UNC employee has tested presumptively positive for COVID-19, according to an Alert Carolina message Tuesday. 

The individual is self-isolating in their home in accordance with state health department and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, the message said. 

"If you are identified as a close contact of this individual, you will be notified directly with guidance and next steps," the message said 

UNC Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz announced last Wednesday that spring break would be extended by a week and the majority of classes would be remote starting March 23, continuing indefinitely. 

Guskiewicz initially announced that campus would remain open and operational, though the UNC System announced Tuesday that students will need an exception from their institution to remain in university housing. Students without an exception will be instructed to leave their university housing.  

Governor Roy Cooper has declared a state of emergency in North Carolina due to the spread of the novel coronavirus.
