JAMESTOWN (Erie News Now) – SUNY Jamestown Community College (JCC) will require incoming and returning students to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, pending the FDA’s approval of at least one vaccine.

It follows the mandate from the State University of New York.








Students who are fully vaccinated and provide proof two weeks before coming to campus will have no COVID-19 related restrictions.

Students who are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated and/or have approved medical or religious exemptions, must wear a mask in indoor areas, outdoor areas if unable to maintain six-foot distancing and public transportation. They must also participate in pool testing and undergo a daily COVID screening.





More information is available on JCC’s website.

  1. A fully vaccinated aide for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a White House official tested positive for Covid-19 after welcoming Democrat Texas lawmakers to the Capitol.

    Last Monday 60 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.

    Democrat lawmakers were seen packed on a private plane, maskless , flying from Texas to DC (flying maskless is against the FAA rules… well at least for us peasants, fines over $100,000).
    Six of them have now tested positive for Covid.

    A White House official and a staff member for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have both tested positive for COVID-19 after attending the same reception last week, officials confirmed to Axios.

    Why it matters: While both individuals are vaccinated and mildly symptomatic, they illustrate how Americans inoculated against the coronavirus can still contract and, potentially, unknowingly transmit the virus — even at the highest levels of the nation’s government.
