Seventy-nine University of Maryland student registrations were canceled for failing to meet COVID-19 vaccine compliance requirements, according to a university spokesperson.
The cancellations come after the systemwide vaccine mandate issued by the University System of Maryland. Students at this university were required to submit proof of full or partial vaccination status by Aug. 16 at 5 p.m., unless they received religious or medical exemptions.
Unvaccinated individuals are required to get tested twice a week on campus and wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces. They also were required to sign a document acknowledging the risks of being unvaccinated.
As of Wednesday, just over 97 percent of the campus population had been vaccinated, according to data on the university’s COVID-19 dashboard.
