Thomas College in Waterville has announced that students, faculty and staff will not be mandated to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
At their website, the college says “…they continue to strongly encourage every member of the community to get one without delay in order to enjoy campus life as fully as possible.”
This is part of the their current plan for the return to classes in the fall:
Unvaccinated community members will be required to take additional safety protocols. These include following the Maine CDC guideline that requires unvaccinated individuals to wear a mask indoors. Thomas College will also require unvaccinated community members to participate in a campus COVID-19 testing program. Vaccinated community members will not be required to test or to wear a mask indoors… Guests are required to wear masks if they are not vaccinated.
