Arizona State University President Michael Crow said the school has expectations that anyone at the campuses will be vaccinated against COVID-19, if they’re not already, before returning.
The university will resume full in-person learning for fall semester, which begins Aug. 19.
“I don’t know about ‘passports’ but we are expecting everybody to get vaccinated because we’re expecting the institution to move forward,” Crow said Wednesday on KTAR News.
On Monday, Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order banning state and local agencies and jurisdictions from requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter government facilities or receive services.
The order, however, does not apply to most private businesses or health care facilities, childcare centers, universities and K-12 schools.
“I think everyone here, for the most part, understands that we’re going to need every tool … to function through the rest of the pandemic and vaccines are a part of it and it’s not going to be a big issue,” Crow said.
