For faculty and staff

We appreciate the input we have received from students, families, faculty and staff so far and it continues to help shape planning efforts. VCU's Return to Campus plan follows Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Virginia Department of Health, city and VCU Health guidance. Our commitment to each other allows us to be better together.

Employee responsibilities

Vaccines: The university strongly encourages our employees to follow the guidance of the Public Health Response Team in choosing to be vaccinated as soon as possible. All full- and part-time VCU faculty and staff who have not already reported their vaccine must complete the following survey by July 15 to report their vaccination status to the university. 

Faculty and staff who are vaccinated, and report their vaccination to VCU, are exempt from masking, daily health checks, surveillance testing and quarantine requirements. Entry Pass requirements will apply; however, your Entry Pass will default to a green check.

Safety guidelines for faculty and staff who are unvaccinated: must follow safety guidelines for their health and for the health of our community, including but not limited to:

  • Wearing a mask
  • Routine surveillance testing
  • Completing daily health checks
  • Continuing to follow public safety measures including quarantine procedures.
  • Entry Pass requirements will apply and will allow entry if public health measures are followed

For more information, see the vaccine FAQ for faculty and staff.
