Meredith College students have been informed by the College that weekly covid-19 testing will be required for all unvaccinated students. Students will be required to pay a fee of $1,125 ($75 per test) each semester for testing that we DO NOT want. We feel this is a violation of our constitutional rights as American citizens and a major health concern. The PCR tests that are used for testing for covid-19 have been found to possibly increase the risk of cancer, especially breast cancer in females, due to the carcinogen that is used to sterilize the swabs used in tests. The CDC has put out the statement that they will be discontinuing the use of the PCR test due to its possible inability of distinguishing between covid-19 and influenza starting on December 31, 2021. How can students feel confident their test result is correct when the CDC isn't even confident in the testing? The CDC also recommends only getting tested if an individual is symptomatic, so why are they requiring weekly testing? Vaccinated individuals have the ability to be infected with covid-19 as well as spread the virus to others, so why are they not required to be tested weekly? There are so many questions that students have that are going unanswered by administration at Meredith College. Unvaccinated students feel singled out, pressured, unheard, and unvalued by the Meredith College administration. Help us stand up for our rights and fight against this testing requirement!
