CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (AP) — Administrators at the University of Virginia are requiring everyone on campus to wear face masks. This will start on Monday, August 9, 2021, in the wake of rising COVID-19 infections from the highly contagious Delta Variant.
All students, faculty, staff, and visitors will have to wear masks when entering any UVA building. This does apply to people who are vaccinated.
Virginia Tech also announced late last week that all instructors and students will have to wear face coverings in classrooms and laboratories when classes beginning on August 23, 2021. Face masks are needed starting Tuesday, August 10, 2021, in indoor public spaces at Virginia Tech properties in communities that have “substantial or high community transmission.”
