App State coronavirus information

App State has returned to pre-pandemic operations with safety precautions in place. The university continues making data-driven decisions informed by prevailing national, state and local public health guidance, ordinances and restrictions.

Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety and well-being of the App State community. As scientific knowledge of the coronavirus continues to evolve, the COVID-19 pandemic changes over time, and government and public health officials issue new orders and guidance, App State will update procedures and plans as needed. 

The university will follow all state and federal orders, directives of The University of North Carolina System, and will adhere to guidelines from federal, state and local public health in order to ensure the safest possible on-campus environment.

Following are some important reminders to help keep our community safe. These will be updated as needed.
