NOLS has developed COVID practices in consultation with federal, state, and local public health experts, peer organizations, and medical advisors, and these practices have evolved over time as the pandemic has progressed.  Per NOLS, “All students are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 on all U.S.-based and select international NOLS Wilderness Medicine courses until December 26, 2022.”  After this date, vaccinations will no longer be required.
