Wright State has not mandated that students get a vaccine but has issued a mask mandate for the entire campus. The university says it is “strongly encouraging” students to get a vaccine against COVID-19. The university held a walk-in clinic on Thursday as freshmen moved in.
Greene County Public Health is partnering with Student Health Services at Wright State Physicians to provide the vaccines.
All students, faculty, staff and visitors must wear a mask when inside all buildings on Wright State’s campus, except when actively eating or drinking or working alone in a closed space.
The university has also said several times they are planning to have most classes in-person this semester.
A spokesmen for the university said Edwards had received the note and forwarded the union’s concerns to the Wright State COVID Task Force.
“The university’s approach to addressing the ever- changing variations of the COVID situation has been and will continue to be guided by the advice and recommendations from various health professionals and regulatory agencies at the local, state and federal level,” Edwards said. “We have had in place a COVID-19 Task Force since the beginning of the pandemic whose work is to continue to assess and develop strategies to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the Wright State community.”
