Drury University will not require masks when school starts this fall. Some social distancing measures might remain in place, however, and the school will continue a COVID-19 testing program for unvaccinated students, faculty and staff. Proof of vaccination will be required to opt out of testing, Drury said in a news release. The university said it continues to work with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department “as the situation evolves.”
Drury is also offering incentives for students attending its residential day school to get vaccinated.
