Massmail: Uploaded & verified Vaccination Record Card to replace testing
In the future, the university plans to use an individual’s verified proof of being fully vaccinated (defined as 14 days after final dose) to replace regular COVID-19 testing for compliance and building access. This is a science-based recommendation from the Shield team based on what the vaccine research has shown so far.
This is expected to be in place before Aug. 23, the first day of the Fall 2021 semester. It is possible it could be available earlier – sometime this summer. When this new policy goes into effect, we will send another announcement. Individuals who do not submit vaccination records will continue to be required to participate in the COVID-19 on-campus testing program.
Please note that until this goes into effect, all university COVID-19 testing requirements will remain. Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action.
