State Health Department App to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) has launched the SlowCOVIDNC Exposure Notification App to help slow the spread of COVID-19 across the state.

The NCDHHS hopes college students and college employees statewide will download the app, which seeks to proactively notify students, faculty, and staff about potential exposure to the coronavirus so they may act quickly to protect themselves and their communities.

The NCDHHS believes the more people who use the SlowCOVIDNC app, the more effective campuses and communities across the state will be in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Since the pandemic began, Central Piedmont has implemented its own set of “slowing the spread” initiatives to ensure a safe learning and working environment for all. These are outlined on the Return to Campus website and include:

  • creating wellness stations, equipped with optional infrared temperature checks, face coverings, hand sanitizer, and latex gloves
  • making face coverings mandatory by all individuals on campus
  • developing posters, fliers, floor stickers, seating charts, and more to remind individuals of the three Ws (wear face coverings, wash hands, and wait six-feet apart)
  • requiring individuals scheduled to be on-campus to complete the online attestation form weekly
  • and transitioning the majority of instruction online to create flexible class formats, and limiting on-campus meetings for students, faculty, and staff

Thank you for following our safety protocols and doing all you can to keep yourself and each other safe.
