BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Virginia Tech’s campus spaces will look a little different as students return this fall.

Students will also be required to wear face masks, and in some cases, attend class on a rotating basis.

Faculty will be teaching behind face shields.

In-person and virtual classes at Virginia Tech are set to begin Aug. 24.
