During the 2021-22 academic year, all employees are expected to be vaccinated, and all students are required to be vaccinated unless they have an approved medical or religious exemption. Weekly saliva PCR testing will be required for any student or Academic Division employee who is not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Pre-arrival testing is also required for students who are not fully vaccinated. More information about vaccinations is available here.
Any student who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate and contact Student Health and Wellness at 434-924-5362 for evaluation.
Any employee who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate and contact Employee Health at 434-924-2013 for evaluation.
Students and employees are not subject to disciplinary action for a positive test result or for any information disclosed as part of contact tracing.
Consequences for Non-Compliance
- Students: As of July 1, students are not permitted on Grounds unless they are vaccinated or have a medical or religious exemption request approved by Student Health and Wellness. Students who are still in the process of being vaccinated should upload their documentation as close to July 1 as possible and are not permitted on Grounds for any reason until they have done so.
Failure to have this documentation loaded by early July could result in delays/disruptions to program start dates in August. Beginning in the first week of July, students not in compliance will have their ID cards deactivated and will be unable to access resources on Grounds. Once the documentation is submitted and approved, cards will be reactivated. This reactivation usually occurs within 48 hours of submission.
- Academic Division Employees: Employees who have not provided proof of vaccination will be subject to weekly viral PCR testing. More information, including consequences for non-compliance, will be provided by mid-July. UVA Health (including Medical Center, UPG, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and HS Library) procedures were sent directly to UVA Health team members on June 24 and are linked from the UVA HR website.
