COVID-19 Information


CCRI requires all full- and part-time students enrolled for in-person classes and all faculty and non-classified employees to be fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 or have an approved exemption.

All visitors must show either a proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 24 hours of coming to campus. Those who arrive without either proof of vaccination or a negative test will be directed to our on-campus testing site to undergo a rapid test. See below for more information on our COVID-19 policies for students and employees:

On-campus protocols

Mask/face-covering guidance

All employees, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask/face covering over both their nose and mouth at all times when on campus, except at a workstation/private office that is in an enclosed space or when eating/drinking.

Employees and students are expected to provide their own mask/face covering, however the college will provide a mask/face covering at entry if a person comes to campus without one. Face shields without a face mask are not an acceptable face covering.


Testing/vaccine clinics

CCRI offers free COVID testing at each of our four campuses for CCRI faculty, staff, and current or prospective students ONLY. Visit our testing webpage for updates on dates, locations, and times. 

The college also offers free vaccine and booster shot clinics at select campuses Monday–Friday. Dates, times, and locations are listed below:

  • Knight Campus, Field House: 10 am–3:45 pm
  • Flanagan Campus, Cafeteria: 10 am– 3:45 pm
  • Liston Campus, Atrium: 10 am– 3:45 pm          

COVID-19 incident reporting

All employees and students, regardless if they have been on campus or not, who receive a positive COVID-19 test, must isolate in compliance with RIDOH regulations and contact CCRI's Contact Tracing team at [email protected].
