What we are doing to help stop the spread of COVID-19

We want to make sure we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of all participants and speakers. We are continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are dedicated to making sure we provide the safest experience possible. We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable and are taking precautions that will help to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We will be following all guidelines outlined by Virginia Tech, which includes wearing masks in all indoor spaces. We encourage everyone to social distance when possible and keep up with personal hygiene:

  • Wear a face mask in public places at Virginia Tech

  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing

  • Avoid touching your face

  • Wash your hands often and for 20 seconds with soap and water

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

  • Stay home if you are sick


We expect all participants and speakers to pay attention to their health and stay home if they feel sick.
