Protect the Pack Updates

Important Reminders

  • NC State is following updated CDC guidance for COVID-19 isolation and quarantine, issued on Dec. 27, 2021. Please click here for the most up-to-date isolation and quarantine guidance.
  • All members of the community who have been vaccinated off campus should upload all vaccine records for both the primary series and any boosters. Instructions on how to upload are here. These records are critical in making decisions regarding quarantine.

In addition, please keep this information in mind:

  • Face coverings are required indoors unless a student is in their own residence hall room alone or with their roommates; a faculty or staff member is alone in their enclosed, private office; or an individual is actively eating or drinking.
  • Any NC State student, faculty member or staff member with a valid NC State ID can get tested on campus. All testing is provided free of charge. For the latest updated information on testing locations and hours of operation, click here.
  • Vaccines are highly encouraged. All faculty, staff, students, alumni and their family members aged 12 years and older can get vaccinated at NC State. For more information on vaccines, click here.

It Takes a Wolfpack

In addition to outlining ways for us all to protect ourselves and others, NC State will continue providing important information to keep students, families, faculty and staff safe, healthy and thriving.

Think and Do

As a public land-grant university, we owe it to the people of our state to tackle challenges such as COVID-19 — and to keep delivering world-class academics, research and outreach for North Carolina and beyond, whatever the circumstances. We strive to ensure that the things we learn and discover on campus will improve lives far beyond it.

If you’re new to this community, know that we’ll have your back — during this pandemic and long after it’s over.
