An Ohio university reversed its mandate after the Supreme Court struck down President Biden’s nationwide mandate.
The University of Dayton (UD) lifted its COVID vaccine mandate for all employees and student workers just days after announcing it, the Dayton Daily News reported.
“As such, the university is lifting its requirements, announced to campus on Jan. 11, that employees be vaccinated or, if unvaccinated with an exemption, undergo weekly testing starting Feb. 9,” the university’s “Path Forward” team said in an email to the campus.

Students celebrated the university’s decision to join companies like Starbucks in dropping the mandates.
“We are glad the university took swift steps to reverse this mandate and would encourage them to reach out to student organizations and faculty when making decisions regarding people’s personal health,” University of Dayton College Republicans President Richard Morisette told Campus Reform.
Morisette added that the Republican club opposes vaccine mandates of any kind because it restricts the freedom to make personal medical choices.
UD said it “strongly” encourages all workers and students to get vaccinated for “their own health and the common good.”
The news comes after tens of thousands marched in Washington, D.C. over the weekend against mandates.
