Protect the Pack
At NC State, we’re doing everything we can to protect the Pack as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Two recent updates include required face coverings in all indoor spaces on campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors as well as weekly surveillance testing unless students, faculty or staff provide proof of vaccination. Visit NC State’s COVID-19 Response page for the most updated information.
NC State hosts SKEMA Business School’s U.S. campus on our Centennial Campus. SKEMA is one of the top business schools in France with additional satellite campuses in Brazil, China and South Africa. The Raleigh campus has grown to more than 500 students a year, making it the largest concentration of French students in the U.S. The GTI helps orient, connect, and integrate the SKEMA students into the NC State and surrounding community. SKEMA students also participate in various cultural, community service, and academic activities as part of the Cultural Exchange Network (CENet).
We all play a part in keeping the NC State community safe. Every member of the Wolfpack has a responsibility to know and act in accordance with all university policies and guidelines, including those that have been developed specifically for the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes following national, state and local health guidelines and requirements, and adhering to local, state and university limitations on group and gathering size.
Who needs to self-quarantine
Following international travel, anyone who enters the United States not fully vaccinated by a COVID vaccine approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization or US FDA needs to self-quarantine. This includes individuals vaccinated with a vaccine not yet authorized for use by WHO as well as individuals who are not vaccinated.
- “Full vaccination” is reached two weeks after the final dose of your COVID vaccine (second dose if you’ve received a two-dose vaccine)
- This applies to everyone regardless of nationality or citizenship
The self-quarantine period is 7 days, even if a student’s required post-travel COVID test is negative.
|Vaccination Status Upon Arrival to the U.S.||Self-Quarantine Required?|
|Arriving to the U.S. Unvaccinated||YES|
|Arriving to the U.S. partially or fully vaccinated by a vaccine NOT authorized for use by WHO or US FDA||YES|
|Arriving to the U.S. partially vaccinated by a WHO or US FDA authorized vaccine||YES|
|Arriving to the U.S. fully vaccinated by a WHO or US FDA authorized COVID-19 vaccine||No|
