To ensure that schools start on time with in-person instruction, California correctly requires all teachers to show proof of vaccination or submit to regular testing (“All California Teachers Must Be Vaccinated or Tested Weekly for Covid-19, The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 12).The move is long overdue.
I’m sure, however, that the new policy will wind up in the courts. But when public health is involved, they have ruled in favor of restrictions over individual freedom. Nearly 90 percent of the California Teachers Association is already vaccinated, with the likelihood that the new rule will increase their numbers.
