BAR HARBOR — The College of the Atlantic plans to require students, faculty, and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the fall semester.
According to a news release issued Monday, President Daron Collins said having a fully vaccinated community should allow the campus community to teach, learn and practice human ecology as it is meant to be done.
School officials said the broad benefits of a vaccinated campus include holding gatherings, sharing meals, resuming transportation protocols, and the return to a more normal academic setting.
College of the Atlantic is encouraging students who have concerns about the vaccine to contact their healthcare provider or get in touch with a local provider through the college.
They are also scheduling an open information session in the coming weeks.
