Facilities Employees and COVID-19

The Facilities Division has developed safety protocols to create a safe and positive work environment for employees working on campus. These safety measures were developed based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, OSHA and the state of North Carolina.

COVID-19 Vaccination: Here’s step-by-step process for registering to receive a COVID-19 vaccination on campus.

Avoid close contactAt least 6 feet of separation.

Only one employee per vehicle. If multiple people must ride in one vehicle, all individuals must wear a face covering, maximize distance and open the windows to increase fresh air circulation.
Wear a face coveringFace coverings are only required indoors in instructional spaces such as classrooms and laboratories, and for participants in university-sponsored summer camps on campus when indoors, regardless of vaccination status. For the rest of the community, face coverings are not required in indoor spaces for vaccinated individuals. Face coverings are not required in outdoor spaces on campus. Anyone who has not been fully vaccinated should continue wearing a face covering indoors and when in close contact with others. Everyone who feels safer or more comfortable wearing a face covering are encouraged to continue doing so. NC State provides face coverings, or you may bring your own as long as it meets these important criteria.
