Pandemic conditions allow a department or program to host campus events as long as they are following current guides. Social events will no longer require approval from the Continuity of Operations Takes Force. The Task Force continues to recommend bottles/boxed meals and plated service over buffets.


Masking is optional in all on-campus buildings and in all healthcare settings. 

Patients, visitors or employees in healthcare settings may choose to wear a mask.

EVMS Medical Group advises that patients with any respiratory symptoms should continue to mask to prevent spreading the infection to others.

Healthcare team members must continue to follow standard and transmission-based precautions during all patient encounters.

Please continue to be responsible if you are feeling sick. Employees are still required to complete the RedCap survey. Please stay home if you are not feeling well and wear a mask if experiencing cold-like symptoms to keep the EVMS community safe and healthy.

Virtual student events require approval

Please remember that all virtual student events require approval by Student Affairs. Please email Student Affairs with any questions.
