ICA at VCU is committed to the health and safety of our staff and community, and we want to ensure that people feel safe and welcome when our building reopens. We are currently reviewing various scenarios and considerations for the ICA’s re-opening, taking into account the current Virginia Stay at Home order, as well as health and safety guidance from the University and state and local officials. We look forward to welcoming our community back to the ICA at VCU, and will announce a re-opening timeline as soon as we, in collaboration with VCU, have determined that we can re-open responsibly and with the proper measures in place. For the most up-to-date information and VCU’s wider response to the situation, please visit VCU's COVID-19 website.
