Policy

Local public schools and universities have already adopted a ‘proof of vaccination or mask mandate’ for the upcoming academic year. We need to assume these policies will trickle down to the parochial schools and smaller communities. It is important we take a firm stance to mitigate the risk of these infiltrating our school systems.

Below are the links to Lincoln Public Schools, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Creighton University’s vaccination/masking policies:
