Mask-wearing rules are being loosened at Rhode Island colleges and universities.
Community College of Rhode Island is making masking optional starting March 13th.
"Students and employees still need to show their CCRI ID with the appropriate green, orange, or yellow sticker indicating vaccination status. Students taking exclusively online courses and visitors must show an ID and proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test within 72 hours of coming to campus," CCRI officials say.
The University of Rhode Island will no-longer require masking indoors on campus except for spaces where direct academic instruction and research are taking place, starting this Friday.
Masks will become optional inside Salve Regina University buildings starting on Thursday, except for medical settings.
