Dartmouth College’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for employees will be expanded to include staff members working remotely, starting Dec. 8.
According to the Valley News, all Dartmouth workers will have to either submit proof of vaccination or be approved for a medical or religious exemption. Currently, only Dartmouth employees working on campus in Hanover must be vaccinated.
Scot Bemis, the school’s chief human resources officer, notified staff members by email. Bemis said Dartmouth will comply with a White House executive order requiring federal contractors to ensure that their employees are fully vaccinated.
