Campus Data


* Through Thursday, June 17


The health and safety of our college community is our highest priority. As this is an evolving situation, we want to keep our students, faculty, staff, and the larger CCRI community aware of the latest information on the coronavirus, and what the college is doing to prepare for the risk of a potential outbreak.

Faculty and/or staff with further questions should reference the Summer 2021 Employee Manual. Additional guidance for students is available in the Summer 2021 Student Manual

CCRI Vaccine Clinics

CCRI will host free vaccine clinics at each of our upcoming Open Enrollment Days, beginning June 22.

Mask/Face Covering Guidance

Employees, students and visitors - even if they are fully vaccinated - 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 is not an acceptable face covering.

On-Campus Protocols

Purple Shield screeners will be stationed at the main entrances of our Knight, Liston, and Flanagan campuses to screen employees (verbally or visually with the COVID Health Check), scan temperatures, register individuals who are fully vaccinated, and manage the surveillance testing protocol for identified students. Campus Police will screen employees at the Newport County Campus.

Please note the revised hours for the final two weeks of the Summer Session I semester: 

Knight Campus (Warwick)

  • Monday–Friday, 8 am–4 pm

Flanagan Campus (Lincoln)

  • Monday, 8 am–3 pm
  • Tuesday–Friday, 8 am–2 pm

Liston Campus (Providence)

  • Monday–Friday, 8 am–12 pm

In line with the most recent public health guidance, those who are fully vaccinated and who have registered their vaccination with the college no longer need to undergo the daily COVID screening or temperature scan.

When you enter one of our campuses, please show your CCRI ID with the Purple Shield sticker to bypass the other screening procedures. If you need a CCRI ID, please contact the Campus Store. In addition, fully vaccinated individuals who are determined to have been in close contact with a COVID-positive individual are not required to quarantine. 

We will continue to reevaluate our protocols based on public health guidance and adjust as necessary. We will share any and all updates before they take effect, so please continue to monitor your CCRI email. 


COVID-19 Incident Reporting

All employees, regardless if they have been on campus or not, who receives 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.
