COVID-19 Information 

UNCW’s commitment to our campus and community’s health and safety is of paramount importance. The university will continue to monitor local and state COVID-19 trends and convey information as appropriate via Best for the Nest, campus inboxes and other official UNCW news sources.

Continue to Report Positive Test Results

To help inform the university’s decisions, students, faculty and staff are still encouraged to report positive COVID-19 test results to Student Health by calling 910.962.0587 or emailing   

CDC Launches Quarantine and Isolation Calculator

In spring 2022, the CDC launched a Quarantine and Isolation Calculator to help individuals figure out what to do if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or been exposed to someone who has tested positive.

Consult Local and State Dashboards 

As of the end of the spring semester, UNCW will no longer display the daily COVID-19 dashboard. Local and state data are available on the New Hanover County dashboard and the NCDHHS dashboard.
