JSNN Research Guidelines Related to COVID-19 

Beginning on March 7, 2022, the use of face coverings will be optional at JSNN. These changes are in alignment with guidance we have received from the UNC System Office, the County, the Governor, as well as North Carolina A&T State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This guidance is a result of a decline of COVID-19 cases nationally.

Masks are optional, and we continue to encourage all members of the university community to wear face coverings indoors. The use of face coverings, while not mandated, should be considered when: 

  • In proximity to those who are immunocompromised, or who are care givers of others that cannot be vaccinated due to age or other health risks. 
  • If you enter a faculty or staff member’s office who requests that you wear a mask. 
  • If conditions in a teaching setting make it safer to be in masks.There will be no more contact tracing taking place effective March 7, 2022. In addition, the universities will no longer require mandatory testing for students and employees who have not provided proof of vaccination.                                                                                                      

For best protection:

  • Face coverings will continue to be made available to all students, staff, and faculty. 
  • We encourage you to get vaccinated and keep your vaccination up to date. Vaccines remain the best defense against COVID-19 and have proven effective against the most severe symptoms.

Thank you for your continued commitment to safety and respect for everyone.
