Relay strongly recommends that all students enrolled in teacher preparation are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes receiving booster shots as soon as students are eligible. Relay encourages students to comply with all employer-mandated vaccine requirements.
- In some states in which Relay operates, employers require staff in an education setting to be vaccinated as a condition of employment. As Relay requires employment as a condition of enrollment, it is likely that a high percentage of students in these states are fully vaccinated.
- The State of Illinois requires higher education personnel and higher education students to be fully vaccinated. Students residing in Illinois will be required to share proof of vaccination per state requirements.
- If a student residing in Illinois has an employer accommodation or exemption, Relay will honor this accommodation or exemption with proof provided.
- If a student residing in Illinois is not vaccinated, the student must comply with testing requirements for any visit to Relay-affiliated locations greater than 15 minutes.
