COVID-19 January 31 Update

To the University Community:

Consistent with a legal opinion issued by the Virginia Attorney General on January 26, 2022, Radford University will no longer require COVID-19 vaccinations or booster shots for students as a general condition of enrollment or in-person attendance. Weekly testing for students not fully vaccinated is no longer required. All employees and students, regardless of campus location, are still required to wear facemasks indoors.  Several locations across campus will continue to provide disposable masks and KN95 masks.

We are extremely proud of the diligence of our Highlander family and your continued efforts to promote the health of our community. COVID-19 testing and booster clinics will remain available for all employees and students as we remain steadfast in our commitment to promoting the health and wellness of our campus. We encourage our students who receive a booster to submit documentation through the secure Medicat portal. Faculty and staff who receive a booster are also encouraged to submit their status using the Employee COVID Booster Submission Form.

The upcoming booster clinic is listed below.

Date:  Friday, Feb. 11

Hours: 10 a.m. – noon

Location: Heth Hall, room 014

What to Bring: Valid ID and vaccination card

Please continue to visit for up-to-date information. We also recommend staying abreast of COVID-19 developments and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities.
