UNCG has been closely monitoring the complex and rapidly evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We are in close contact with local, state, and federal agencies as well as health officials and other universities to ensure we are making consistent, fact-based decisions about our activities and our operations.
Of course, we hope to see you at the remaining scheduled events. If you join us, please remember some of the simple guidelines prepared by the CDC that will help protect you and limit any risk to others. In fact, the same actions that help prevent the spread of the flu also help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. These actions include:
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid shaking hands.
- Cover your cough with a tissue or sneeze/cough into your elbow.
- Disinfect frequently touched objects using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Stay home when you are sick and avoid close contact with those who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
These are challenging times, but we remain excited about our upcoming events and look forward to seeing you there. Now, on to Dance events:
MARCH 21 AUDITIONS
At this time, we are still planning to hold our in-person auditions on March 21. We know that there are a wide range of circumstances and situations that our attendees must consider. Based on CDC guidelines, anyone who is experiencing any symptoms or is otherwise ill, anyone with underlying medical issues (particularly chronic issues like heart or lung disease and diabetes), and anyone who feels more at risk due to age or other personal circumstances should not attend. We understand if you are unable to join us, and only ask that you let us know.
At this time, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the March 14 performance of “A Djeli’s Job” and the March 20 & 21 performances of “Delta Chi Xi Barefoot Charity” Concerts. While disappointing to all of us, this action is consistent with decisions being made around a number of community and university events in response to COVID-19 virus concerns. We are confident this is the right decision. Our highest priority remains the health and safety of our community. We look forward to rescheduling these events and making them as valuable and successful for all as possible.
Our “MFA Thesis”, “BFA Thesis”, and “Spring Dances” concerts are still scheduled to occur, but with seating limited to 100 seats per show. Please visit www.etix.com to purchase tickets for these events! All of our shows will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/uncgdance. You can subscribe to the channel and receive notifications when the live streams start.
Thank you so much for your support of these decisions. Please know we appreciate your continued enthusiasm and partnership surrounding UNCG. For continued updates from us, please visit our coronavirus website.
