UNC Medical Center Statement (11/6/18) - 9:00 a.m. Update

Following Monday’s OWASA water main break in Carrboro, the UNC Medical Center is in the process of returning to normal operations throughout the day on Tuesday, November 6.  OWASA customers are still under a boil water order, but the hospital is able to operate under these conditions using bottled water and alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The Medical Center has resumed accepting emergency cases and is accepting transfers on a case-by-case basis. 

UNC Health Care clinics in the Chapel Hill area will resume normal operations today at noon.  

The Medical Center is providing bottled water for use by patients and staff until final water quality testing is confirmed by OWASA.  In the meantime, we are directing, patients, guests, and employees at UNC Medical Center and our outpatient clinics served by OWASA not to drink tap water or use it for hygiene purposes.

There are no longer limitations on visitation at the Medical Center.
