UNG COVID-19 Reporting & Confirmed Cases

UNG is requesting that all students, faculty, staff and visitors complete a daily self-screening for COVID-19 symptoms before returning to campus or interacting with the campus community face-to-face.

What To Do If You Have Symptoms

If you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, you should not come to campus.

UNG students and employees should report COVID-19 exposures, symptoms, or confirmed cases using our COVID-19 self-reporting form. Employees should also contact their supervisors. Reports for students are routed to the Dean of Students and reports for employees are routed to Human Resources.

If you believe that you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to it, please contact your healthcare provider. If you are having chest pain, serious difficulty breathing, or another type of medical emergency, please call 911. The State of Georgia has a COVID-19 hotline: (844) 442-2681. You may call this number for additional screening and testing information.

When You Can Return to Campus After Isolation

Using the GDPH guidelines for discontinuing home isolation, the affected employees and students may return to campus when they have met all three of the following criteria:

  • No fever for at least 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medicines), AND
  • Improved symptoms, AND
  • Been at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared.

When a Positive Test is Reported

The Dean of Students or the Department of Public Safety will follow-up with every report to ensure that any necessary notifications of potential exposure are communicated and applicable public health guidance is followed.

Areas known to be used by an individual infected with COVID-19 will be isolated. Facilities staff will use most readily available and efficient sourcing for individual space decontamination:

  • Third-party services
  • UVC Moonbeam disinfection unit
  • Georgia National Guard fogging techniques

Contact Tracing and Notifications

Guided by the Centers for Disease Control and the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH), UNG is following established protocols for contact investigation and notification of impacted individuals. Consistent with those protocols, UNG will provide notifications of positive tests on a local level as warranted and GDPH oversees contact tracing and notification of persons who have had close contact with individuals in question.

Contact tracing by GDPH will be facilitated by case identification conducted by UNG. If you are deemed by GDPH to have increased risk because of exposure to these individuals, GDPH has the responsibility to notify you.  In many cases, affected individuals may reach out to other individuals personally to make them aware. 

UNG Confirmed COVID-19 Cases

The University of North Georgia has a system in place to record self-reported test results and symptoms; to evaluate reporters' unique situations; and to support the university's COVID-19 related academic, employment and on-campus notification needs.

UNG presents the information below to provide current, relevant information about the status of the COVID-19 pandemic on our campuses as collected through our reporting system. Please note:

  • These numbers include reports by students and employees who have self-reported a positive COVID-19 test and the number of positive results from tests that the university has administered.
  • The totals may include reports from individuals who have not been on campus recently, there may be delays in reporting, and the reports may even include individuals who have recovered.
  • The university is legally bound to protect the health and privacy information of individual faculty, staff, and students. Privacy laws prevent us from identifying anyone on this list.
  • When UNG learns of positive cases, they are reported to the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH) in a timely manner and for the county where individuals reside. The GDPH Daily Status Report provides members of our community an accurate and relevant assessment of the number of cases in the areas where they live and work.
