(KOMO NEWS) – Hundreds of Western Michigan University students have been fined by the school since its new COVID-19 testing policy took effect on Jan. 10.
Last month, the university announced it will start fining students who miss their weekly tests. Students in the weekly testing protocols are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. WMU said in order to be considered fully vaccinated, a booster shot is required.
