UNC will not require COVID-19 tests for students or faculty before they return to campus


UNC will not test students for COVID-19 prior to re-entry on campus this semester. That's according to the University’s Roadmap for Fall 2020, UNC's COVID-19 response plan. Jim Thomas, professor of epidemiology and ethics at UNC, said the reasoning behind not testing everyone was, in part, an effort to conserve testing supplies and staff resources. (Daily Tar Heel)
