COVID-19 Update from VP Stansberry


Dear Monarchs,

We had a great finish to the spring semester, and I am pleased and encouraged that COVID-19 infection rates continue to decline. Your commitment to the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community has been strong. Given the current state of public health conditions, both locally and on campus, Old Dominion University will no longer require masks in the classroom or on campus transportation effective immediately. For those students enrolled in clinical or health settings that require the use of masks, please continue to follow the guidance of your program and faculty.

Students, faculty, and staff who wish to continue wearing masks are encouraged to do so. Please abide by a "mask friendly" approach, whereby those who wish to wear a mask respect those who do not, and those who do not wish to wear a mask respect those who do. Masks will continue to be available throughout campus.

COVID-19 testing will continue to be available to students, faculty, and staff at the Student Health Center located in Webb Center. Appointments may be scheduled via the Monarch Wellness Portal and walk-ins are welcome.

Summer COVID-19 Testing Hours
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Student Health Services, south entrance across from the former Chemistry Building.

As a reminder, if you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days, please do not report for repeat testing.

I am asking members of our community to continue to Reign Responsibly. Please visit the COVID-19 website for the latest information and guidelines.​​​​​

With Monarch Pride,

Don Stansberry, Ph.D.
Vice President
Student Engagement & Enrollment Services
