Seven Stanford University students tested positive for the coronavirus this week, despite being vaccinated.
The Bay Area private university announced Thursday in an email to students that the infected students were symptomatic. However, it didn’t offer details about whether the cases were connected or part of an outbreak, according to The Mercury News.
Stanford recommends that everyone wear face coverings in indoor spaces, despite most physical distancing and masking requirements being lifted for fully vaccinated people. The university also requires face coverings in campus spaces that are open to the public, such as the Stanford Bookstore. According to the university, students who have submitted proof of vaccination are no longer required to get tested weekly. Nearly 90% of people visiting the campus regularly are vaccinated.
