The vaccination mandate means it will be allowed to end face mask and social distance requirements.

The college vice president says it’s their duty to prioritize the health and safety of everyone.

“We’ve had a few people ask questions, but in general I think people see the need for it, and how it’s going to keep them safe when they’re on our campus,” said Trocaire College Senior Vice President Dr. Richard Linn.
