CDC COVID Quick Tips

General Guidance for Exposure and Testing Positive

Free At Home Covid Test



UNCP students should contact Student Health Services (SHS) at 910.521.6219 to schedule an appointment if they wish to be tested for COVID-19 or are symptomatic. 

Students who test positive for COVID-19, should contact SHS immediately. Medical excuses for students may be obtained from SHS only when the student sees the healthcare provider BEFORE class is missed. 

Students can also make an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, while supplies last.



All employees who have tested positive, suspect they may be ill with or have been exposed to COVID-19, should notify their supervisor. For more information on obtaining at-home tests or finding testing locations, use the following link.
