COVID-19: Research Continuity Guidance
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation has partnered with university leadership and teams across campus to provide guidance, information, and resources about the impacts of COVID-19 on research projects and laboratory and research spaces in order for faculty, staff, and student to safely conduct research.
In alignment with Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order 72, Executive Order 79, and new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on masks, fully vaccinated Virginia Tech students and employees do not have to wear masks in most indoor settings, including labs.
See campus notice from May 27, 2021 for more information.
