COVID-19 Update to SVHEC Community

August 17, 2020

The Southern Virginia Higher Education Center (SVHEC) is back open after COVID-19 caused a campus-wide shut down on March 18th. We are excited to welcome students, staff, and partners back to campus as we resume some normal activities. 

We are taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously, and we pledge to do everything in our power to keep SVHEC buildings, classrooms, labs and workspaces clean and safe from COVID-19. 

Our world has changed and so must we. We have developed a comprehensive Reopening Plan and implemented new guidelines and protocols, including a new check-in process, to help keep us safe. Please take some time to thoroughly review this plan. All questions or concerns may be directed to:
Amy Cole, COVID-19 Coordinator, at or 434-572-5441.

We are also strongly encouraging the SVHEC Community to download the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Exposure Notification App, COVIDWISE. This app  is a secure way to alert users if they have been in contact with someone who has been exposed to COVID-19 within the past 14 days. Visit to learn more.
