Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find information about Coronavirus, symptoms, how it is spread, and who is most at risk?

Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Virginia Department of Health sites dedicated to Coronavirus information.

What are the plans for cleaning barracks and other areas on post?

The general process for cleaning barracks, academic spaces, and other areas on post has been aligned with guidelines of the CDC and VDH. This will continue through spring furlough and beyond. Custodial staff are not permitted to clean inside the individual cadet rooms, so cadets are required to clean their own spaces, especially door knobs, desktops, and sinks.

How will expenses be handled or reimbursed if Institute travel is interrupted?

Please contact the Comptroller’s office at ext. 7270 with travel expense questions.
