“also mandating Covid testing three times a week for all students, regardless of vaccination status”
This is just something we’re going to have to live with now. At least for the near future.
Harvard Business School temporarily moves some MBA classes online to curb Covid outbreak
Harvard Business School moved all in-person classes for first-year MBA and some second-year students online this week, and increased its Covid-19 testing requirements to try to curb a recent surge in breakthrough cases on campus.
The school, located in Boston, is switching to remote learning through Oct. 3 to try to suppress the virus, which is mostly infecting the university’s fully vaccinated graduate students, according to the institution’s website. Roughly 95% of the university’s students and 96% of its staff are vaccinated. More than 1,000 students are enrolled in the business school’s class of 2023.
“Contact tracers who have worked with positive cases highlight that transmission is not occurring in classrooms or other academic settings on campus,” business school spokesman Mark Cautela said in a statement. “Nor is it occurring among individuals who are masked.”
Cautela added that the university is requesting that students avoid unmasked indoor events, group travel and gathering with anyone outside their households.
The business school is also mandating Covid testing three times a week for all students, regardless of vaccination status, Cautela said. The university previously required fully vaccinated students to get tested once a week, while unvaccinated students had to submit test results twice per week.
