Every participant, faculty, and staff member who will attend UVA executive education programs in spring 2021 will have to meet certain health and safety requirements designed to keep members of the UVA and broader community safe. UVA’s health and safety guidelines are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

All program participants must complete a COVID-19 test and submit negative results within two weeks of the program date. Upon registration, participants will receive instructions to request a complimentary testing kit. Participants will conduct the test at home and submit samples to the testing lab via UPS.

For more information about testing procedures as well as the other health and safety requirements, please view the executive education Return to Operations webpage. While we know we will never be able to eliminate all risk, UVA is developing stringent protocols and practices to mitigate health risk as much as possible.
