University of Utah strongly encouraging students to get vaccinated, wear masks during fall semester



Salt Lake City, Utah — On Tuesday during a virtual town hall, leadership at the University of Utah asked all students, faculty, and staff to wear masks during the fall semester and get a COVID-19 vaccine if they haven’t already done so.

President Taylor Randall, Dr. Mike Good, and other leaders shared their expectations and answered questions from students, staff, and the public in the town hall meeting.

They outlined how they intend to hold all classes in person in the fall. Because of the quickly spreading Delta Variant of COVID-19, they asked everyone on campus to wear masks indoors and get a coronavirus vaccine.

The university could one-day mandate COVID-19 vaccines if the vaccines are fully FDA approved.

They will hold a ‘Back to school stress briefing’ Wednesday, Aug. 11 at 1 p.m. on the university’s Facebook page.
