COVID-19 Information

The information regarding GC’s COVID-19 health and safety planning, schedules, recorded COVID cases on campus, and other resources can be found on this page.

We have researched and employed the most expert advice available and have adapted – and will continue to adapt – our guidelines as needed.

COVID-19 Basics

  • COVID-19 can affect anyone. People of all ages can get COVID-19 — and many young people have died or developed serious health problems because of COVID-19.
  • COVID-19 has a wide range of symptoms. Some people have cold-like symptoms — like coughing, running a fever, or feeling tired and achy. Other people have more serious symptoms, like having trouble breathing or thinking clearly. Researchers are working to find out why some people get sicker than others.
  • People can spread COVID-19 without having any symptoms. Some people with COVID-19 feel totally fine. But even if you don’t feel sick, you can still spread the virus to other people.
  • COVID-19 mainly spreads through the air. People with COVID-19 can spread the virus to other people around them when they talk, cough, sneeze, sing — or even just breathe.
  • Some people develop long-term health problems from COVID-19 — called “long COVID.” Researchers are working to find out why this happens to some people who get COVID-19.
  • You can get COVID-19 more than once. Researchers think that after you get COVID-19, you may have a short period of so-called “natural immunity” — but they’re not sure how long it lasts.
  • Get vaccinated. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine has been known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, and is marketed as Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
