Returning to In-Person Events at the School of Government

UNC-Chapel Hill and the School of Government are returning to in-person experiences. We are required to follow the University’s Community Standards in order to help maintain a healthy and safe communityHere’s what that means for all of us: 

Face Masks 

As of July 12, all members of the Carolina community, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors must wear a face mask at all times while inside any University building. We will provide you with a mask upon arrival at the Knapp-Sanders Building if you don't have one.   

You may remove your face mask only when eating or drinking. Masks are not required outdoors. 

Every week, the University will evaluate the mask standard. If it changes, we will let you know. 

Practice Healthy Habits and Be Respectful 

Monitor your health and do not come to campus if you have any symptoms listed on the COVID-19 symptom list. 

Members of the Carolina community should not ask others for their personal health information, including vaccination status. 

Practice healthy habits and be respectful of those who wish to maintain their personal space. 

Other Lessons Learned 

At the School of Government, the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that many public officials appreciate the opportunity to participate in programs remotely. We are glad to hear it, and we are doing our best to continue to offer this option.  

We are looking forward to welcoming people to campus this summer and fall.
