    A New Jersey student has said he is barred from taking classes at
    Rutgers University because he has not been vaccinated — even though he
    is only studying virtually from home.

    Logan Hollar, 22, told NJ.com that he largely ignored the school’s
    COVID mandate "because all my classes were remote" from his Sandyston
    home, some 70 miles from Rutgers’ campus in New Brunswick.

    But he was locked out of his Rutgers email and related accounts when he
    went to pay his tuition at the end of last month — and was told that he needed to be vaccinated even though he has no plans to attend in person.


    Hollar’s stepfather, Keith Williams — who has been vaccinated — told
    the outlet he is "dumbfounded" at Rutgers’ stance.

    "I believe in science, I believe in vaccines, but I am highly confident
    that COVID-19 and variants do not travel through computer monitors by
    taking online classes," Williams told NJ.com.
