Masking and Physical Distancing

The university continues to follow the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention based on Davidson’s County’s COVID community level. Individuals are encouraged to follow CDC guidance based on Davidson’s County’s COVID community level. The Davidson County community level will also be noted on the right-hand side of each myVU newsletter.

Throughout the pandemic, the university has followed the latest scientific updates and developed its plans in close consultation with experts at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, as well as national, state and local public health officials.

Gatherings and Activities

Gathering size limits are lifted for gatherings. Outdoor areas should be used as community gathering spaces whenever possible. Indoor gatherings may occur at up to the full capacity of a given indoor space, including work, classroom and research spaces.
