Fall 2020 guidance for employees

Virginia Tech is getting ready for fall 2020 semester.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, there will be changes in the way our university, workplace, and classrooms look and operate. There will also be new practices and protocols that we ask all members of our community – employees and students alike – to follow.

These changes are part of our plan to provide an experience that is as close as possible to the traditional Virginia Tech experience while maintaining our highest priority – the safety, health, and well-being of our community.

We understand these changes may be difficult and, at times, confusing. Our university and your leadership is here support you through these changes.

The following university documents are the foundation for the employee guidelines and space recommendations:

As we prepare for fall 2020, the university is taking many steps to provide a safe workplace for every employee. We ask for your help, understanding, and partnership in maintaining these steps. Working together is how we will navigate the complexities of our “new normal.”
