Keep Researching

As part of ongoing efforts to support safe research, scholarship, and creative activity during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Research and Engagement is announcing the following updates to our guidelines.

As you continue your work, remember it is important to remain vigilant about preventing the transmission of COVID-19 and adhere to University guidelines, including the COVID-19 reporting protocols. The best protection is to combine vaccination with masking and distancing.

Effective March 7, 2022 face coverings are no longer required in most spaces on campus. In research environments where participants are immunocompromised or unable to be vaccinated due to age or other health risks, however, all members of the UNCG community are encouraged to wear face coverings.

Effective March 15, 2022 restrictions on international travel are removed. Travel to low risk locations as defined by the International Travel Policy can proceed as planned. Applications for Provost approval to travel to high risk locations (as defined by the International Travel Policy) are still required. ALL travelers must register their travel prior to departure.

We are here to assist: If you have questions about how to mitigate risk during your research, scholarship, and creative activities please reach out to Dr. Kim Littlefield at

As we are all aware, the COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates can change rapidly. Check the COVID-19 UPDATES information for the latest guidance.
