PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Rhode Island College has made adjustments to its COVID-19 protocols ahead of the spring semester.

“At this advanced stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe there is a reasonable balance to be struck between responding to changing circumstances and maintaining a consistent, practical mitigation policy on campus,” said Rhode Island College on its website.

The college is requiring masks in classrooms when Providence County is at a “high” level of risk.

Masks will also be required in faculty offices, labs, and student services staff offices.

The institution also recommends wearing masks in all buildings and at events.

Anyone who’s not fully vaccinated and has not received exemption, will be required to wear masks throughout the campus and continue with mandatory testing.
