For many, an already stressful experience will be made more stressful. I surely wouldn’t want to take a bar exam alongside maskless and unvaccinated peers.
— Aaron Taylor, executive director of the AccessLex Center for Legal Education Excellence, commenting on the COVID-19 precautions (or lack thereof) that will be used during the upcoming in-person administration of the February 2022 bar exam. While some states will require masks and proof of vaccination/negative testing for the unvaccinated, others will enforce masking but not proof of vaccination/negative testing, and others still will have no mandatory COVID precautions at all aside from social distancing.
