A “cluster” is defined by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as a minimum of five cases with illness onsets or initial positive results within a 14-day period and plausible epidemiologic linkage between cases. Pursuant to Clery Act requirements, UNC Pembroke will notify campus by posting information publicly here as soon as a cluster is identified by campus and local public health officials. A cluster will remain classified as active until all individuals in the confirmed cluster have been determined presumed recovered. This list will be updated as clusters are identified or their status is changed.
Notes and Additional Information
CASES represent UNC Pembroke faculty, staff, students or subcontractors working on campus who have known, confirmed cases of COVID-19, have been present on campus during their period of infection and could present a current risk of exposure to other members of the university community. Active cases are those individuals with a confirmed, positive test result and are currently in their isolation period. The semester cumulative data reflects the total number of positive confirmed cases at UNCP since January 4, 2022. The semester cumulative presumed recovered indicates the total number of individuals who have been released from treatment or isolation per CDC guidelines and are recovered or presumed recovered.
Please note: This information does not include individuals who may have confirmed cases but have not reported to campus in the past 14 days or individuals who are self-quarantining without a confirmed diagnosis. The numbers do include diagnoses confirmed through on-campus testing, self-reported diagnoses and those identified by local health officials.
All persons determined to have EXPOSURE RISK are formally contacted individually through our contact tracing process and will be provided additional instruction. For more information on test and tracing, please review information contained in the Roadmap to Fall 2021.
To protect individuals’ private health information, UNCP will not identify or offer personally identifying information about employees or students diagnosed with COVID-19. Additionally, as required, the university follows confidentiality guidelines and directives set forth in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
UNCP uses a variety of COVID-19 TESTS to determine exposure risk on campus. The primary test used to diagnose infection is the standard PCR test. Results from these tests are generally returned in 24 hours up to several days. Rapid test results are generally returned within 15 minutes to an hour. SHS may also use rapid antigen tests in specific circumstances to screen individuals and identify the presence of COVID-19. Per NCAA guidelines, UNCP Athletics primarily uses rapid antigen testing for the regular screening of student-athletes and staff participating in competitive sports. Tests from both SHS and Athletics are reported in the weekly count above.
