University of Cincinnati Professor John Ucker has garnered negative attention on social media after one of his students posted a screenshot of an email that was allegedly sent by Ucker.
The university required Sotzing to quarantine for fourteen days after his girlfriend had tested positive for COVID-19, even though his test came back negative.
During the time that Evan Sotzing would have to be quarantined, he wouldn’t be able to attend an in-person lab for a class that Ucker teaches. Sotzing emailed Ucker explaining the situation and his inability to attend the scheduled lab, to which Ucker didn’t respond until after the in-person lab had already occurred. Sotzing then tweeted a picture of Ucker’s response, which has now gone viral.
