Virginia Tech issues mask requirements for upcoming football game
From: University Relations
In keeping with current guidelines related on wearing masks at university events, Virginia Tech will require masks — regardless of vaccination status — at all indoor common areas within Lane Stadium for the Sept. 11 game. Indoor common areas include — but are not limited to — concourses, stairwells, elevators, restrooms, hallways between club spaces and/or suites, shops, or other locations.
Masks are required in indoor public spaces. Masks are strongly encouraged in private suites and other private areas. Masks will not be required but are strongly encouraged in outdoor stadium seating spaces.
Masks can be removed when people are eating or drinking.
These efforts are intended to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 in the region among those who are traveling to and from the game while continuing to address the growing challenge of the delta variant. Stay home if feeling sick. Guests should not attend a game if they have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, new loss/change in taste or smell, or have recently tested positive for COVID-19.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a contagious disease that can lead to severe illness. By attending an athletic event at Virginia Tech the individual assumes all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
