University of Tennessee System drops mask mandate and vaccine requirements in latest twist


Campuses across the University of Tennessee System are once again free of a mask requirement and vaccine mandate as the roller coaster ride over COVID-19 protocols takes another twist.

UT System President Randy Boyd notified faculty and staff of the change Wednesday. Despite the suspension of the vaccine requirement, Boyd encouraged all staffers to get vaccinated.

The UT System receives more than $742 million in federal funding, and campuses like UT Knoxville and the UT Health Science Center in Memphis are federal contractors.
