COVID-19 Office Protocols

As part of Radford University's safe and healthy operations plan, the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures (FORL) has implemented protocols for visiting our offices that will help students, staff, and visitors remain safe during in-person operations.

Visiting the FORL Office

FORL's offices are located in the College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences building, floor 4, suite 4304 (one level above the main building entry from the central quad).

When visiting the FORL offices, please enter the suite through the glass-paned door at the front of the suite. While in the office suite we ask that all vistors wear a face covering and maintain social distancing. 

We ask that you schedule an appointment before stopping by the office in person, so that we can be sure the office is staffed to help you. We can also meet via Zoom or phone call to answer any questions.

Meeting and Shared Spaces

Faculty members will hold the majority of office hours in electronic format, either through videoconference, online chat, or telephone. Where a face-to-face meeting is required in the office suite, an appointment should be scheduled in advance by contacting faculty or staff members direclty.

Meetings should occur in the enclosed space of an individual office, and safe distance should be maintained during the meeting, with all attendees wearing face coverings.

Faculty and staff who must share work space should coordinate occupancy with office mates so as to minimize physical contact. When co-occupancy is necessary, safe distance should be maintained and all occupants should wear face coverings.

Single-occupant offices do not require wearing of face coverings when unaccompanied by a visitor.
