Faculty & Staff Resources

The University of Virginia is closely monitoring the emergence of COVID-19, and consulting with experts at UVA Health, the Virginia Department of Health, the CDC and other partners. The top priority is the safety of the members of the University community, and UVA will make decisions based on public health guidance and current conditions here and elsewhere. This page will be updated regularly and highlight the latest statements or guidance from the University.

In light of recent developments, this page has been updated to prioritize Online Teaching and Tools.  If faculty find anything useful which should be included here, please email Dan Weiss (dsw5k)
