COVID-19 Precautions at VNS



This is small attentive school that is able to offer a one on one instruction per student environment by appointment. Appointments must be made for any visit to the school. A mask is required at all times in the building. As long as there is not a Executive Order from the Virginia Governor to close schools then we are still open for lab bookings. Video bookings are available when there is a closure. Online study is open 24/7 during a statewide closure until classes can resume. Executive orders that close schools will offer completion deadline extensions. Depending on restrictions and a decreased chance of COVID-19 exposure changes we may increase to 2 students per class sometime after February 2021.

Institutions of higher education shall comply with all applicable requirements under the Phased Guidance of Virginia Forward and the “Guidelines for All Business Sectors.” Any postsecondary provider offering vocational training in a profession regulated by a Virginia state agency/board must also comply with any sector-specific guidelines relevant to that profession to the extent possible under the regulatory training requirements. Such professions may include, but are not necessarily limited to: aesthetician, barber, cosmetologist, massage therapist, nail technician, and practical nurse.

Face Coverings
The waiver of § 18.2-422 of the Code of Virginia is continued, so as to allow the wearing of a medical mask, respirator, or any other protective face covering for the purpose of facilitating the protection of one’s personal health in response to the 14 COVID-19 public health emergency declared by the State Health Commissioner on February 7, 2020, and reflected in Amended Executive Order 51 (2020) declaring a state of emergency in the Commonwealth. Amended Executive Order 51 (2020) remains so amended. This waiver is effective as of March 12, 2020 and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. on March 12, 2021, unless amended or rescinded by further executive order. Further, where a mandatory business sector requirement in this Order conflicts with a requirement to wear a face covering in Amended Executive Order 63 and Order of Public Health Emergency Five (2020), the business sector-specific requirement governs.
