BYU is encouraging students to get vaccinated before fall semester and will be implementing “vaccine-appreciation rewards” to students who show their immunization card.
“BYU is strongly encouraging all students, faculty and staff to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible to protect our campus community from a COVID-19 outbreak,” a University Communications email said.
BYU is preparing for a traditional fall semester with in-person class at full capacity. Students are not required to wear masks or socially distance, unless there are changes in COVID-19 trends.
Non-vaccinated students have until July 23 to get their first shot of two-dose vaccines to be fully vaccinated before the start of fall semester, the email said.
