A college in Michigan deactivated the ID cards of some 700 students who failed to submit Covid-19 test results in a timely manner.
Approximately 718 undergraduate, professional and graduate students at the University of Michigan found their ID badges were deactivated Monday following a campus health department assessment.
According to The Blaze:
The university requires all students who live, work, or learn on campus to undergo weekly coronavirus testing as a part of its “Community Sampling and Tracking Program.”
The students were notified about their new restricted status in an email after it was discovered that they had used their cards recently but had not completed a COVID-19 test in four or more weeks or did not have a prior test on file.
As student “Mcard” ID badges are required to enter virtually all buildings on campus, the suspension effectively prevents students from attending in-person classes.
Detroit Free Press reports 136 of 375 students locked out of their Mcard in March have had their accounts restored.
The deactivation of the crucial student IDs over arbitrary rules set by the school appears to be a foreboding omen of future life in the US under a Chinese-like social credit score model.
