Question: Can I ask my campus colleagues and/or peers about their vaccination status?
Answer: Please do not engage in asking others about their vaccination status. There is currently a vaccine policy undergoing review by the Office of the President, and once that has been determined, there will be information on how the policy will be upheld.
Individuals should each take the safety precautions needed to alleviate their own concerns and best take care of themselves – this includes wearing a mask, taking COVID-19 safety precautions and receiving the vaccine, if you can do so.
