Health Advisory: COVID-19

UPDATED MONDAY, MARCH 30, AT 8:49 A.M. ET

As COVID-19 continues to spread around the world and in our communities, we are aware of one self-reported case that affects a member of the Queens community. The University is currently complying with the Mecklenburg County and North Carolina stay at home orders, which went into effect on March 26 and March 30, respectively.  Prior to these orders the University took extensive and proactive steps to limit the potential impact of COVID-19 on our community, including but not limited to the following:  

  • On March 6, all employees at a higher risk of severe heath complications from COVID-19 were asked to work from home.  
  • On March 12, the University further reduced the number of on-campus employees by instituting a limited office coverage schedule, within which 50% or more of most offices’ employees were asked to work from home.  
  • By March 15, Queens students were required to move out of residence halls, and all classes were transitioned to virtual modalities the following week.  
  • On March 22, the University allowed only essential employees on campus and required all other employees to work from home.  

The University also developed a protocol to follow for all presumptive positive and positive test results that includes assisting in the notification of close contacts who are members of the Queens community and disinfecting impacted University facilities (if any).
