Protect the Pack: A message from Chancellor Woodson

NC State community:

Please click here to watch an update from Chancellor Randy Woodson on the university’s COVID-19 response. Continue to check the Protect the Pack site for updates, and please read the important information below. 

What you need to know:

  • COVID-19 — and in particular, the omicron variant — is widespread throughout the Raleigh area and the state. 
  • Vaccines are the best defense and have proven effective against the most severe symptoms. Please get vaccinated and, if you are eligible, get your booster shot. 
  • Even if you’ve been vaccinated and boosted, you should take personal responsibility to follow safety precautions that help protect yourself and others. 
  • Testing is free and available to you on campus Monday through Friday. If you have tested positive within the last 90 days, you do not need to be tested but should seek medical care if you have symptoms. 
  • Wear a well-fitted face covering and, if you can, wear a KN95, N95, KF94 or surgical mask, or double mask with cloth face coverings.
  • Follow the university’s community standards, guidelines and policies related to  COVID-19. This includes wearing a face covering when required, adhering to isolation and quarantine guidance and getting tested as required for unvaccinated individuals. 

Thank you for continuing to do your part to protect yourself and protect the Pack.
