Students who have not received the COVID-19 vaccination at Colorado State University (CSU) are being threatened with arrest for trespassing. Michael Katz, director at the Student Resolution Center sent an email, obtained by Turning Point USA, to all unvaccinated students:
“I am writing to you on behalf of Student Conduct Services at the Student Resolution Center because information provided to our office by the Pandemic Preparedness Team indicates you have not submitted your proof of vaccination or requested an exemption.
Since your non-compliance with this requirement poses a threat to the safety and well-being of the University community, the following interim measure applies to you:
Effective immediately, you are trespassed from all University property until May 16, 2022. This means you are not permitted to be on any University property or in any University buildings; this includes but is not limited to, residence halls, university apartments, dining halls, in-person classes, the Morgan library, the rec center, and the Lory student center. Please note that faculty are not required to make alternative arrangements for the student to complete their course work away from campus while you are trespassed from campus.
If you are found on university property or in any university building you may be cited or arrested for trespassing and face further disciplinary action.”
CSU’s COVID-19 requirements “are among the strictest in the nation, despite the university having a high-vaccination rate” reports The Post Millennial. 87.5 percent of students have reportedly received the vaccine, as well as 84.9 percent of faculty members. Therefore the school has reached a “threshold that is often considered to be herd immunity, according to the WHO.”
