NCCU Community:

Please review the important COVID-19 reminders detailed below.

  • Reporting a COVID-19 Positive Test Result or Close Contact
    • To report a positive COVID-19 test result or close contact with a known COVID-19 positive person:
      • Faculty and Staff: Call 919-530-3219 and select option “2.”
      • Students: Call 919-370-0901 or 919-530-3219 and select option “3.”
  • Minimizing Risk for COVID-19: Faculty and Staff Meetings and Gatherings
    • There has been an increase in the number of close contacts and subsequent quarantines required due to groups scheduling in-person meetings or trainings for faculty and staff. At this time, NCCU will require all indoor business meetings to be held virtually using the myriad of resources available on campus to facilitate this safety measure. It is strongly suggested that large work-related meetings or gatherings are cancelled, adjusted or postponed.
      • For operational purposes, a meeting will be considered any gathering of three or more persons for 10 or more minutes. 
      • Please consult Information Technology Services’ training sessions that are available here: .
      • When videoconferencing or teleconferencing is not possible, meetings should  be held in open, well-ventilated spaces (preferably outside). Any in-person meeting must take place in accordance under state and local regulations and guidance. Please note: You must continue to wear a mask or face covering and maintain at least six-feet distance from others.  
    • If you have questions about video or teleconferencing capabilities or need training, please contact the Eagle Technical Assistance Center at 919-530-7676 or submit a ticket here:
  • Disinfecting Classroom and Conference Room
    • Door hangers stating, “This room has been disinfected,” will indicate if a room has been cleaned and sanitized. The door tag should be moved each day from outside to inside door handle by the first person using the room (classroom, conference room, etc.). The Building Environmental Services department will return the tag to the outside of the door once they have disinfected that room each evening.
  • Communicating COVID-19 Updates
    • As a reminder, please use your official NCCU email address and email account to ensure you are receiving the most updated information. The university will only communicate with students, faculty and staff via their or email addresses.
  • Recording of Staff Town Hall (Health and Safety Protocols & Human Resources Guidelines) Held Jan. 13
