Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana State University sent an email to students Thursday afternoon, saying the school will no longer require masks for fully vaccinated people.

Following new guidance released today by the Centers for Disease Control, ISU announced the requirement for masks to be worn in common areas on campus has ended for people who are fully vaccinated.

“We’re going to put our trust in the sycamore community and the sycamore family,” said Indiana State University director of communications Mark Alesia. “We have had to have that trust in everyone since this began. With everyone’s cooperation, we’ve come a very long way.”

The university says those who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will still be required to wear masks, unless they are in a private office or private residence hall room.

Alesia says the university will look at protocols for fall including classes at a later date.

The university strongly encourages everyone to get vaccinated.
