Southern Virginia University strongly encourages all individuals whose health conditions allow to vaccinate against COVID-19. Consistent with the principles of choice and accountability, individuals are invited to choose the path of vaccination or non-vaccination and their associated opportunities and requirements.

Vaccinated* Individuals

  • Not required to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19 (with proof of full vaccination)
  • Required to declare vaccination status to be employed by the University or to participate in certain designated activities including athletics and some performing arts groups
  • Required to immediately report any symptoms linked to COVID-19 to the COVID Resource Center (CRC) and be tested for the virus

Non-vaccinated Individuals

  • Required to mask indoors
  • Required to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19
  • Required to test regularly to be employed by the University or to participate in certain designated activities including athletics and some performing arts groups
  • Required to immediately report any symptoms linked to COVID-19 to the COVID Resource Center (CRC) and to be tested for the virus

Declaring Vaccination Status & Testing Requirements

Instructions for those who are required to declare their vaccination status and further details about specific testing requirements will be sent to relevant groups (employees, student-athletes, performing artists, etc.). Please direct any questions about this policy to your respective supervisor, coach, or ensemble director.
