Purdue disciplines students not following COVID protocols

Some students at Purdue University are receiving disciplinary action for failing to follow the school’s requirements for COVID. Before the fall semester started, Purdue gave students the option to either be fully vaccinated or participate in weekly routine testing. A large majority of students are doing that, but the school says there are 84 students receiving disciplinary action for not doing the weekly testing after getting two warnings. The school says if they get a third warning, they’ll be suspended. At the same time, Purdue says 214 employees have received a warning for not participating in the required COVID testing. The school says over 80% of Purdue students, faculty and staff are fully vaccinated.
