Gonzaga to require COVID-19 vaccines for students

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga University is joining the list of schools that will require students to prove they are vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to participate in campus activities this fall. The Spokesman-Review reports Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh made the announcement Thursday in a message to the university community. The requirement includes students in programs split between in-person and online activities, but not to graduate programs offered exclusively online. Exemptions will be permitted for medical and religious reasons. McCulloh said he expects the university’s COVID-19 vaccination reporting web page to be online later this month.
