COVID-19 Information

Campus Entry Policy

Visitors to CCRI must:

  • Show proof of vaccination, or
  • Show proof of a negative COVID test (or take a rapid test on campus before entry), or
  • Wear a mask at all times while on campus
*Visitor policy applies to prospective students and their families, students who are exclusively enrolled in online courses, or any individual who needs to access the campus.

Students, faculty, and staff
CCRI’s vaccine and booster policy for students and employees remains in effect. 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*. Students and employees still need to show their CCRI ID with the appropriate green or orange sticker indicating vaccination status. 

*Students and employees with approved medical or religious exemptions are still required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours each time they come to campus. CCRI’s on-campus testing sites remain available to all students and employees who have an approved exemption.

Masking is optional for all employees and students. We strongly encourage individuals who are not yet vaccinated or have an approved medical/religious exemption to continue to wear a high-quality (KN95 or N95) mask. And, we strongly support and respect all individuals who choose to continue to wear a mask to protect themselves and others.

Testing 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. 

*Beginning Friday, July 1, 2022, the college's on-campus testing clinics will no longer provide PCR tests since PCR testing is no longer mandated by the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH). CCRI will continue to provide rapid testing, which is the college's primary screening test.

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].

Employees with questions about quarantining and discharging time should contact CCRI Human Resources.
