Bluefield, VA – As Bluefield University prepares to welcome the campus community for the 2022 spring semester, COVID-19 protocols and guidelines have been updated for a safe return.
With the rising number of COVID-19 cases locally and nationally, Bluefield University will begin its spring semester remotely starting Jan. 10, 2022, with in-person classes resuming on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022.
All members of the campus community will be required to receive and submit a negative COVID-19 test before returning to campus. All traditional students will be assigned a day and time to return to campus for COVID-19 testing. Information regarding the required COVID-19 tests will be sent to students and employees.
Masks will be required for all members of the campus community to help slow the spread of the virus during the beginning weeks of the semester. This includes classrooms, public spaces, and when in the presence of other individuals. Faculty and staff remain under the Governor’s mask mandate in place.
All members of the campus community are encouraged to receive their booster or initial vaccine shots.
