COVID Precautions:
Based upon recommendations from the CDC and because of COVID-19 surges in our region and across the country, Roanoke College will require everyone on campus to wear a mask in indoor settings starting on August 16 through the end of September. This change is based on the best medical recommendations at this time and based on our experience in managing COVID-19. Masks help to lessen the likelihood of infections and therefore should help us to gather our Maroon community on campus and in classrooms with a decreased chance of a back-to-school surge.  
Please note that the College continues to closely monitor COVID-19 cases in our region and may need to adjust, postpone, or cancel in-person and on-campus events and meetings to ensure the health and safety of our Maroon community.
