COVID-19 Information

On-Campus Testing 

  • Testing: Mitigation testing for off-campus students and employees is no longer required. However, testing will continue to be offered Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the South Village Crossing (SoVi) testing site. Signage will direct you to the correct location. No appointment is necessary for testing, but registration is strongly encouraged. Please note: Students who experience significant, prolonged upper respiratory symptoms, have chronic illness (i.e. asthma) or who are immunocompromised should consider an evaluation by their healthcare provider or call the Student Health Center at 704-687-7400 for advice regarding care.

Face Masks

  • Face masks are optional on UNC Charlotte’s campus. This includes classrooms and other academic spaces. This follows the UNC System issued-guidance that makes face masks optional in all indoor settings on all campuses of the System, sent on Feb. 25. 
  • ​If you are unvaccinated or at high risk for complications, you are still strongly encouraged to wear a mask. 
  • Please note: Federal and state regulations still require a face mask in the Student Health Center.
  • Even with this guidance, you are encouraged to wear a mask to further reduce the risk of infection to yourself and others, especially when you are in close proximity to others in confined spaces. For example, this may include in hallways, in elevators, when waiting in line in buildings or in residential community spaces.
  • Masks are available for pick up in the Popp Martin Student Union, Atkins Library and the Career Center for individuals who wish to wear one. 

Niner Health Check

Daily completion of the Niner Health Check is no longer required. However, you will continue to receive the health check every day. Should you become ill with COVID-19 symptoms, please complete the form. Simply delete the email if you do not need it.
