Yale Reportedly Allowing COVID Restrictions to Create ‘Surveillance State’

Yale students report their university has become increasingly oppressive with their COVID-19 restrictions, to the point of turning students against one another.

  • Yale University has reportedly become increasingly strict with its COVID-19 policies, including a COVID-19 hotline allowing students to turn one another in according to The Washington Free Beacon.
  • Students are required to mask indoors, even when alone, which led to one student being reported for taking off their mask when they thought they were alone in a library.
  • The student said he received a notice from Yale administration two days later, notifying him that he had violated the school’s “Community Compact.”
  • An “evaluation” of conduct was put into motion for the student and threatened with a “public health withdrawal” after he was found “guilty” of the violation, per the notice sent to the student. 
  • The Free Beacon reported that the infraction took place the same night that 1,000 Yale students gathered for Yale’s annual holiday dinner, which is one of Yale’s more ritzy traditions.
  • Campus Reform reported that the University of Illinois has put into place a policy that could deny students access to internet services if they violate COVID-19 policies.
  • The punishment could mean students are unable to turn in and view class assignments while they are blocked from the platform and potentially the internet.
  • The University of North Carolina has developed a “Health Greeter Kiosk” that enforces mask-wearing and social distancing, according to CBS News.
  • The University of Texas has gone so far as to give students guidelines for mask-wearing during sex, according to a Campus Reform report.
  • So-called “draconian” COVID-19 protocols at United States universities have prompted Sen. Rand Paul to say that “For supposedly smart people, they’re acting in a very unscientific and stupid fashion,” according to CBN News.
  • Johns Hopkins surgeon and professor Dr. Marty Makary, said in the same report he doesn’t see the “scientific support for masking indoors.”
