DAVIS (CBS13) — UC Davis is considering getting rid of their COVID-19 testing requirement.

The school has announced a plan to stop requiring vaccinated people to test for COVID once every two weeks when the winter quarter starts in January.

Instead, they’ll just be encouraged to test.

But as omicron spreads, a petition by a lecturer is calling on the university to keep that regular testing requirement. So far, it has around 500 signatures.
