HANOVER — As of Tuesday, Dartmouth College no longer requires students and employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or to have an approved exemption, according to a Tuesday update from the college’s provost and executive vice president.

The college continues to “strongly recommend” that students, faculty, staff and visitors stay up to date with their COVID vaccines, the message from Provost David Kotz and Executive Vice President Rick Mills said. 

Vaccines, face masks and COVID-19 antigen tests will continue to be available on campus.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 are asked to isolate, wear a mask around others and talk to their health care provider in case they are eligible for treatment. They are also asked to inform close contacts of their positive test; students are asked to inform the Dartmouth College Health Service and employees Axiom Medical, Dartmouth's occupational medicine partner.

Dartmouth’s change came the day after President Joe Biden signed a bipartisan congressional resolution ending the U.S. national emergency to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the AP reported.
