Coronavirus

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A majority of Indiana University’s on-campus COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted for the fall 2021 semester, a university health guideline packet released Tuesday said.

From Aug. 1 to Dec. 31, there will be no social distancing guidelines in any campus facilities. All classes will be taught in person inside normal, full capacity classrooms.

Additionally, IU students that are fully vaccinated will have the option to not wear a mask on campus. Any fully vaccinated person on campus will not have to participate in weekly mitigation testing, but may be asked to participate in less frequent surveillance testing, according to the university.

Students, faculty and staff who have received vaccination exemption or are not yet fully vaccinated will be required to complete weekly mitigation testing and wear a mask when on campus. Symptomatic testing as well as voluntary asymptomatic testing will still be available for all people, the university said.
