Charting the Course to Safety

ECSU is charting the course for a safe environment to protect every Viking as they live, work, and learn in our community. We continue to follow COVID-19 recommendations from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

Mask Mandate Lifted

On February 17, Governor Cooper and state health officials encouraged North Carolina schools and local governments to end their mask mandates effective March 7, 2022, if COVID-19 cases continued to trend downwards in the state. Therefore, in accordance with new recommendations and guidance from the UNC System, the mask mandate is lifted on campus starting on Monday, March 7.

Below are about the updates to university protocols:

• Mask Requirements
You are no longer required to wear a mask on campus.  While the mask mandate is lifted, you are welcome to wear a mask based upon your personal preference.  
• Social Distancing
Social distancing and capacity restrictions are lifted.  
• Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test
You will not be required to provide proof of a negative COVID test or vaccination to gain entry to athletic or other large-scale events.
