VUIM UPDATE TO TESTING REQUIREMENTS (for return to campus) – August 16th, 2022

For anyone who has been exposed (come in contact with someone who is known to have COVID-19), who has a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 themselves, or lives with someone who has been exposed or has a confirmed case of COVID-19:

The individual must quarantine and stay away from campus for at least 5 days. After the 5-day period, if the individual is no longer symptomatic, they must submit two (2) negative COVID-19 tests, taken at least 24 hours apart before returning to campus. Either PCR or home-based tests will be accepted

For anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID19, but that individual does not live with you, you do not need to be quarantined if you do not have symptoms and you are up to date on your vaccinations. In this case, you must provide evidence of vaccination to avoid the quarantine period.

VUIM continues to require all members of the community to wear a mask on campus.

As articulated by Governor Ralph Northam on June 11, 2020, in anticipation that conditions at the state, regional and local levels are conducive to an institution of higher education conducting in-person instruction and on-campus educational operations in the academic year 2020-21, the Virginia University of Integrative Medicine submitted a campus reopening plan in early July for state compliance review.

The plan has been reviewed by the State Council of Higher Education and has been found to be compliant in containing the required components of the “Higher Education Reopening Guidance”, which was developed in consultation with the Virginia Department of Health.

The plan is accessible through the link below:
