Some will not require a vaccine, but will provide incentives, such as waiving the requirement to wear a mask
Most universities in the United States require students who come to campus to show that they have been vaccinated against certain diseases, such as bacterial meningitis, which can spread quickly indoors. However, the story of Covid-19 is much more complicated.
This fall, more and more schools will require students to be tested for the coronavirus vaccine, including Cornell University in Michigan, Rutgers University and the University of Oakland, Brown University in Rhode Island and Texas St. Edwards. Other universities do not need to be vaccinated, but will provide incentives, such as exempting the requirement to wear masks on campus.
Many more schools have not formulated this policy, nor have they made it clear that they will not need exams. Although the demand for vaccines is turning into another political debate.
On the second day after Florida’s Nova Southeastern University announced its requirement for a vaccination certificate, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order prohibiting companies and government agencies from requesting vaccination certificates.
Several universities across the country have implemented new restrictions and closures, including Wayne State University in Detroit, the University of Connecticut, and Bates College in Maine.
Although, some people believe that “the way to defeat Covid is not to close schools too much, but to suppress the spread inside and outside the school,” New York Health Commissioner Dave A. Chokshi said at a press conference. on Monday.
