Minneapolis schools to require vaccination or regular testing for employees
But board votes to reject plan that would require students to be vaccinated
September 15, 2021
Minneapolis Public Schools employees must either get vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested regularly under a mandate unanimously approved by the school board Tuesday night.
The policy will take effect by Oct. 15 and extends to contractors and volunteers who work directly with students.
It comes in response to a surge of COVID-19 cases caused by the highly contagious delta variant.
