Klaassen v. Trustees of Indiana University, No. 21-2326 (7th Cir. 2021)Annotate this Case
Starting next semester, Indiana University students must be vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they are exempt for medical or religious reasons. Exempted students must wear masks and be tested for the disease twice a week. The district court rejected a due process challenge to those rules.
The Seventh Circuit denied an injunction pending appeal. The court noted that vaccinations and other public health requirements are common, that the University has allowed for exemptions, and that the students could choose to attend a school that has no vaccination requirement.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on January 25, 2022.
