For Summer 2022, the University will continue to provide the residential environment and activities that are at the core of the Lynchburg experience. To ensure safe and successful operations, COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are required for all students, faculty, and staff. Only religious and medical exemptions will be permitted. The campus is open to all visitors. Planning for clubs, organizations, performing arts, intercollegiate and intramural sports, and all other components of the student experience, has returned to more normal ways of gathering, recreating, and performing, in person and with minimal restrictions.
Masks are no longer required in classroom and meeting situations, although those who wish to wear a mask are encouraged to do so.
The COVID-19 Task Force continues to meet regularly and is following the guidance of the CDC and Virginia Department of Health. Contingencies are in place should we need to respond to a return or spike of the virus on campus.
Please refer to the University’s 2022 Opening Plans for more information.
Plans for the opening of the Fall 2022 semester are being developed.
