UPDATE 3/31: The university has transitioned to "essential operations" status in response to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency. This will further scale back university operations, minimizing the number of people on campus by limiting on-campus functions to those essential for life safety, online instruction and academic support, animal care, essential research, and maintenance of buildings and critical infrastructure. Individual employees should consult their supervisors for more information on how this affects their roles. The university's full statement is available here

Other relevant status changes from previous updates continue: 

  • ICTAS buildings are limited to Hokie Passport access. If you do not have Hokie Passport access, and it is essential for your work, refer to the Building Access page for instructions. 
  • All ICTAS conference rooms are locked and unavailable for use until further notice.
