Return to Campus

Emory & Henry College has implemented a COVID-19 response policy that provides guidance to employees, students, and other relevant stakeholders of the College for the safe return to in-person instruction and on-campus educational operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Relevant sections from the College’s COVID-19 Response Policy Memorandum are included here and serve as the College’s Reopening Plan that addresses all of the required components detailed in the Virginia state guidance document, “Higher Education Reopening Guidance.”

All students, faculty, staff (including Apogee, National Management Resources, and Sodexo on-site staff), and visitors (including, but not limited to, job candidates, parents, patrons, prospective students, spectators, trustees, and vendors) accessing College property or an approved instructional site (i.e. Intermont Equestrian Center or Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center) for College-related purposes must comply with the rules, standards, and procedures outlined or referenced in this policy.


Guiding principles:

  • Daily wellness checks

  • Physical distancing

  • Face coverings

  • Hand washing and sanitizing

  • Cleaning and disinfecting procedures

  • Anti-discrimination and anti-stigma

Emory & Henry College is dedicated to monitoring this rapidly changing situation and will continue to provide informational updates as they become available.
