NAU joins Arizona’s largest public universities Friday to announce via email the university would require all employees be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by Dec. 8, as directed by the Biden administration’s executive order. This announcement includes undergraduate and graduate student employees. 

President José Luis Cruz Rivera noted in the email the university respects individual opinions regarding the vaccine and will permit religious and disability or medical accommodations as allowed by federal law. 

Moreover, Cruz Rivera said the university is currently working through final details for how employees will submit their proof of vaccinations and additional information regarding issues. 

“We recognize that some of you may have questions around medical or religious exceptions, as well as how to ensure your proof of vaccination documentation has been received,” Cruz Rivera said in the email.  “We are currently working through final details and will provide links to FAQs and additional information regarding issues such as dates for doses based on the type of vaccine to meet compliance requirements on our HR website.”
