VCU Libraries operations: COVID-19

As of March 21, 2022, masking is voluntary indoors and outdoors on campus, with the exception of classrooms, clinical settings, health system facilities, and on public transit. VCU’s Public Health Response Team continues to strongly encourage masking for individuals at risk for severe COVID-19 infection. Community members who wish to wear masks are also encouraged to do so — we must all continue to treat one another with kindness and respect.
