Confirmed Cases of COVID-19

This is the first iteration of the UNC Asheville COVID-19 reporting webpage. We are working with the UNC System on additional reporting criteria. This webpage may be modified as needed throughout the semester.

This page will be updated with confirmed cases daily (Monday-Friday)*. Last updated on November 23, 2020.

*Per UNC System guidance, the final day of required daily COVID-19 reporting for the fall semester is Monday, November 23. Beginning Friday, December 4, we will begin weekly COVID-19 reporting and the positivity rate for that week. Daily reporting will resume on Monday, January 4, 2021.  

The list below represents UNC Asheville faculty, staff or students who have known, confirmed cases of COVID-19 and have been present on campus in the previous two weeks.

The list does not include individuals who may have confirmed cases but have not reported to campus in the past 14 days or individuals who are self-quarantining without a confirmed diagnosis.

This information is based on cases reported to the University and verified by the UNC Asheville Health and Counseling Center.
