UNC's Mask Policy
- Masks are required whenever you are indoors in public spaces on campus—that is, whenever you are in any space other than your own residence hall room or a private office.
- Masks required outdoors any time you are around other people—even when those other people are roommates, family members, or loved ones who you live with.
- There is no general exception to this policy based on distances between instructors and their students during class.
To maintain a safe and healthy environment on campus, students and employees who test positive for COVID-19, are symptomatic and/or were exposed should report these situations to UNC over winter break.
