This plan serves as a foundation upon which to build a safe, effective, and cogent strategic path from a status of essential operations to full operations within the context of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. This novel coronavirus pandemic has been dynamic and challenging to the Virginia Tech community and the institution. This plan recognizes the many unknowns in the public health realm, and balances those with the knowns in higher education: community, innovation, and resiliency. This plan provides specific approaches and mitigation strategies to optimize the educational and research experiences with currently known public health guidance, on-campus impacts of the fall 2020 semester, and the projected impacts of COVID-19 through the end of calendar year 2020.
