Covid certificates at the University of Basel

On 1 November, the University of Basel will introduce a Covid-certificate requirement for in-person courses. This is a delayed response to the Swiss Federal Council's ruling that, starting on 13 September, people must have a certificate showing vaccination, recovery, or a recent negative test in order to attend indoor events (such as concerts, restaurants, movies, and lectures). However, registered students who don't have the certificate can ask to be offered alternatives to in-person classroom instruction. I'm all for giving such options to those who cannot be vaccinated (because of autoimmune disorders, say), but instructors should not have to make extra arrangements for those who refuse to get vaccinated or even tested.
