Does the COVID virus spread from computer to computer?

I know there are viruses that can cause considerable damage to a person’s computers, but I never thought COVID was one of them.

But Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey has taken the COVID restrictions to the next level, as it has just banned a student from taking online classes because he wasn’t vaccinated.

According to the New York Post, Logan Hollar, 22, recently discovered he was locked out of his account at Rutgers when he tried to pay for his online classes.

The reason that Rutgers gave for banning him from taking virtual classes that he would view on his computer is because he had not been vaccinated.

Hollar lives 70 miles from Rutgers, and apparently breathing on a computer screen without a mask miles away from where it is being hosted is now considered a potential threat to spread the virus.

There is an appeals process available for students claiming a vaccine exemption, but Rutgers states that takes weeks to process.

Meanwhile, Hollar, who has already missed the sign-up date for his fall classes, says he may be forced to transfer to another university to continue his online education.
