USask expects returning students to be vaccinated, faculty association calls for requirement

May 4, 2021
The University of Saskatchewan has made a statement that it is expecting those coming back to campus in the fall to be vaccinated against COVID-19, though it will not make vaccines mandatory. The USask faculty association has passed a motion supporting vaccine requirements for those coming back to class in September, noting that it protects those returning to the potentially crowded campus environment. “All of us interact daily with people working and living in the city, so making sure all of our campus community is vaccinated will certainly, I believe, help stop the spread outside of campus,” said USask Faculty Association chair Allison Muri.
