COVID-19 Vaccination Verification and Rapid Testing Program
In addition to a mask requirement on campus, SAIT is finalizing a plan to introduce a mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Verification and Rapid Testing Program this fall. Under the new program, if you’re coming to campus, you will be required to complete a Vaccine Verification Status assessment through the SAITALERT app declaring you are fully vaccinated or you will be subject to periodic rapid testing. The program is expected to launch mid-late September.
