Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, North Carolina Central University (NCCU) has partnered closely with local, state and federal public health authorities to monitor developments, coordinate our response, share information and provide guidance regarding COVID-19 to the Eagle community.

As we begin to see some light at the end of the tunnel, we are feeling a sense of relief and optimism.  While we continue to closely monitor the situation and consult with our public health partners, the data is encouraging and allowing us to return back to some of our pre-pandemic policies, events and behaviors. 

We cannot stress enough our gratitude for those who have contributed to the relatively low case rates we have seen at NCCU over the last 2 years.  Those of you who got vaccinated and/or tested, consistently wore a face covering, followed the quarantine and isolation guidance and took other measures to assure the health and safety of the NCCU campus are the reason that we can begin to look forward. 

Please continue to check back here often for the most current guidance and information.
