Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office announced on July 13 that colleges and universities across the state can drop COVID-19 vaccine mandates for staff and students.
However, the vaccine mandates for K-12 students and day care facilities will remain intact, according to a statement from Pritzker, a Democrat.
“Vaccine mandates for higher education employees and students and emergency medical service providers will not be reissued,” the governor said in a July 13 statement on modified orders. It doesn’t help if the city’s highest elected official cannot control her own anger. In fact, it materially hurts. And to be clear, this is far from the first time Lightfoot has lost it.
