UVa plans to continue forward in starting the spring 2021 semester classes Feb. 1 by requiring all students living or learning on grounds or in the Charlottesville area to submit pre-arrival covid testing results.
When students return, gatherings will be limited to six people with face covering and social distancing requirements remaining in effect. In addition, more frequent asymptomatic prevalence testing will be available to all students, and not just those living on grounds.
Furthermore, Pres. Ryan and Dean Groves sent out a video to students detailing plans for the upcoming semester and protocol for the remainder of the 2020-21 academic year. Read more about UVa’s covid policies here.
