Mask Update

As public health conditions on campus and throughout the region have continued to improve over the past few weeks, Centra College is changing current campus requirements for mask usage. The City of Lynchburg has remained at “low” transmission rates and we have not shown an increased number of cases on campus. 

Masks will be optional on the Centra College campus immediately for individuals who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Anyone who feels more comfortable and chooses to continue wearing a mask may do so. Please be respectful and supportive of individual choices and situations. 

We will continue to monitor the safety of campus. All faculty, staff and students are expected to continue respiratory and hand hygiene, social distancing, and avoid congregating in common areas. Masks may be required again in the future if conditions change. Please continue to stay home and contact your supervisor or professors as per policy until you are able to determine the nature of your illness and ability to safely return to activities.
