Mask Mandate Lifted

This message notifies the Bradley community of changes to existing campus masking policies and provides vaccination and booster information for the summer and fall terms.

As COVID-19 case numbers have remained steady and low, we are comfortable with continuing to ease campus mask requirements. As of March 28, face masks are recommended, but no longer required in classrooms, except if requested by the instructor. Masks continue to be required in the following situations:

  • In classrooms, if requested by the instructor.
  • Medical and clinical settings, including Health Services and Counseling Services.
  • University events where required by contract with speakers, performers, etc. 
  • In a private office or residence hall room, if requested by the occupant.

Please continue to be respectful of those who are high risk or have family members who are high risk; they may choose to continue wearing masks or ask you to wear them in their offices or classrooms. Let’s carry on the Bradley spirit and support others. Individuals should be comfortable wearing a mask and be free from pressures or harassment.

There are N95 masks available at the Markin Center control desk, Student Center info desk, Bradley Health Services, Bradley Bookstore, and the library. Masks are available during regular business hours, which vary by location, while supplies last.

VACCINATION AND BOOSTERS

Moving into the summer and fall terms, students, faculty and staff will still be required to have received their second dose of a two dose COVID-19 vaccine series or a single dose COVID-19 vaccine or have an approved medical or religious exemption. This aligns with our current policy.

New Bradley students will be required to provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19 as they will for other immunizations.

Booster shots will continue to be recommended and not required.

COVID-19 DASHBOARD

Our COVID-19 dashboard will now be updated weekly.

Remember, clinicals, internships, co-ops study abroad, etc. type programs may have other requirements or policies that differ from Bradley’s policies. We expect you to seek that information and follow those requirements.

Students studying remotely and employees working remotely who are not present on campus are not covered by the campus COVID-19 policy. However, please note, individual programs may require you to be vaccinated to meet their requirements.

We continue to monitor guidance from the CDC, IDPH, and other governing agencies regarding campus operations. Visit the Bradley Unite site for additional COVID-19 information. Questions and concerns regarding COVID-19 and Bradley University policies can be sent to covid19concerns@bradley.edu.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
