Masks & Vaccinations Will Be Required At Michigan State University
As this upcoming school year approaches, Michigan State University publicly made a statement, addressing the mask and vaccination question that many Michigan school and businesses have been asking. Should vaccinations and masks be required?
According to MSU President, Samuel L. Stanley, yes.
“Yesterday’s CDC data is concerning and significantly shifts the landscape. Across the country and here in Michigan, we are seeing a rise in cases and are finding the delta variant is more contagious. The new CDC data suggests that even vaccinated individuals can in some cases spread the virus.” President Stanley said during a press release.
This news comes after the updated CDC guidelines about vaccinated individuals and mask wearing.
All individuals will be required to wear masks while indoor on campus, beginning August 1st. This doesn't just apply to MSU Campus, but as well as facilities throughout the state. This new requirement, will be in place for at least the first few weeks of the new fall semester.
A vaccine influx may soon happen, and no new vaccine events are going to be held to accommodate these, Linda Vail the Ingham County Health Officer said.
“This, to me, has nothing to do with politics,” Stanley said during the liv announcement. “It has everything to do with public health. This is how we keep each other safe.”
