COVID-19 Safety Update

As UVA Health increases its ability to care for the needs of surgical and ambulatory patients, we must vacate the close-in parking garages of team members who do not normally park close-in.

You must return to commuter parking in the expanded Red Lot at Scott Stadium. You must wear a mask at all times while riding the bus or shuttle. Bring your mask with you.
