Bradley University Easing COVID Restrictions As Campus, Community Rates Plummet

WCBU/Jeff Smudde

Bradley University will ease its campus-wide COVID-19 restrictions starting Tuesday.

This comes as both the campus-wide and community positivity rates remain low. The campus positivity rate is currently just 0.17%. Campus-wide testing has accelerated, wth 580 COVID-19 tests conducted between Jan. 29 and Feb. 4.

Students will now be allowed to dine-in at off-campus restaurants and host limited numbers of guests in their residences. Public study spaces also are reopening in the library and elsewhere, and organizations can be approved to meet indoors or outdoors.

University administration is still requesting virtual meetings whenever possible. Limitations continue on non-Bradley visitors to campus.

Masks, social distancing, and other mitigations to limit virus spread are still required across campus. Bradley University started off the semester with tighter restrictions in place as students returned to campus.
