OSU Requiring Students, Staff To Report Vaccine Status

(ONN) – The Ohio State University sent an email to the community saying all students, faculty and staff will be required to report their vaccination status by August 5th.

All students living on campus will be required to complete an at-home test within seven days of returning to campus.

Masks will not be required for those who are fully vaccinated except for public transportation.

Anyone not fully vaccinated is still required to wear a mask indoors.

Anyone choosing to remain unvaccinated will be required to be tested weekly.

OSU says more than 70 percent of all returning students, faculty and staff are fully vaccinated.

The University of Findlay has said it will not require students or staff to be vaccinated for the fall semester.

UF says it may at some point send out a survey in which students and staff can say if they’ve been vaccinated if they choose, but it will not be a requirement.
