Governor Doug Ducey today issued an Executive Order protecting access to Arizona’s public universities and community colleges for all students.
Under the Executive Order, students cannot be mandated to take the COVID-19 vaccine or submit COVID-19 vaccination documents. Students also cannot be mandated to be tested or wear masks in order to participate in learning.
The Executive Order provides exemptions for students participating in medical or clinical training. It does not prevent institutions of higher learning from encouraging vaccinations, providing testing or having voluntary mask usage, consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control.
