New COVID-19 Student Vaccinate Policy to Substitute Testing Protocol Instead of Vaccination
The UVI the Board of Trustees approved a revised vaccination policy that permits a testing protocol to substitute for the vaccination requirement for unvaccinated students. In making this decision the Board considered improving health conditions in the Territory and the transition from a pandemic to an endemic phase of COVID-19. With the changes to the policy, unvaccinated students can attend in-person classes and participate in other campus-based activities. However, to live in the residence halls students still must be vaccinated.
Unvaccinated students who desire to attend in-person classes will have to submit to testing on a periodic basis, the regularity of the test will be determined based on an agreement between the UVI Administration and the Department of Health. It is anticipated that the testing will be twice a month initially but will be reduced to monthly as conditions continue to improve.
This testing exception does not apply to employees, though they are encouraged to be tested as appropriate. In addition to vaccinations and testing, all students and employees are encouraged to continue to take precautions and utilize masks, social distancing, and sanitation measures.
