Policy

Local public schools and universities have already adopted a ‘proof of vaccination or mask mandate’ for the upcoming academic year.

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:
