The University of Missouri System has developed a new human resources policy to comply with the federal COVID-19 vaccination mandate. The policy, announced Dec. 2, applies to all full-time and part-time employees at S&T, including graduate research assistants (GRAs), graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) and student employees, whether they work in person or remotely. This policy does not apply to volunteers or S&T students who are not university employees.
According to the policy, employees must provide documentation that they are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or have been approved for an exemption by Tuesday, Jan. 18. To become fully vaccinated by this date, individuals must receive their final dose by Tuesday, Jan. 4.
Beginning Monday, Dec. 6, all air passengers, regardless of vaccination status, must show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than one day before travel to the United States.
