Carolina Together

Updated June 28, 2022

As we come to the end of the spring semester, we have decided to close the Carolina Together Testing Program. The number of students seeking COVID-19 tests at the Carolina Union has dropped as self-test kits are widely available, and we will have fewer students on campus this summer than we do now.

Starting May 9, enrolled students should contact Campus Health if they wish to be tested or are symptomatic. Campus Health will be available open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for in-person visits.

Faculty and staff who wish to be tested or are symptomatic over the summer should contact their physician’s office. Please visit the Environment, Health and Safety website for specific COVID-19 guidance for employees.

Per the extension of the Governor’s May 4 executive order, eligible UNC System employees who provide documentation of receiving their first COVID-19 booster prior to Aug. 31, 2022 will get an extra eight (8) hours of paid leave (prorated for part-time employees). This special leave is available for use now and will expire March 31, 2023.

For details on eligibility and how to use this leave, please visit the COVID-19 Leave Information page of the HR at UNC website.
