In alignment with new guidance released by the CDC last week and in effect for all Rhode Islanders today, May 18, if you are fully vaccinated you are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors. This will be our policy at Bryant starting today.
People who are not vaccinated remain vulnerable to COVID-19. All members of the Bryant community are encouraged to get vaccinated at their first opportunity.
If you are NOT fully vaccinated, you should continue to wear a mask indoors and when you are within three feet of others outdoors to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Remember that your mask should fit snugly but comfortably over your nose, mouth, and chin without any gaps.
Bryant continues to follow best practices and guidance from public health experts. Campus policies are subject to change and will adhere to standards of the Rhode Island Dept. of Health.
Bryant has changed its policy regarding campus visitors between Fridays at 5 p.m. and Mondays at 7 a.m.
As of Sept. 24, 2020, Bryant no longer permits anyone beyond our own students, faculty, staff, close family members and guardians of students making a pickup or drop-off, registered guests of the Admission office, delivery personnel including food deliveries, and supervised vendors to be on campus between 5 p.m. Fridays through 7 a.m. Mondays. Uber drivers will be limited to essential trips.
No persons other than current Bryant students are allowed to stay overnight on the Bryant campus and no persons other than current Bryant students and authorized Bryant employees are allowed inside any Bryant residence hall or townhouse.
Non-Bryant students or other persons may visit the Bryant campus between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and from 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Fridays, under the following conditions:
- Every visitor must register or be registered by his or her host via the Bryant Guest Pass system in Banner https://bryant.edu/visitorpass.
- Along with completing the Guest Pass application (app), the visitor will also be prompted to complete the Bryant Health Checker attestation app.
- Every visitor is required to stop at the Entry Control Station (ECS) and display both the approved Guest Pass and attestation app to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) officer stationed there. Any person displaying a red or black X on the app will not be allowed entry onto campus.
- Every visitor is required to have and wear a face covering that adequately covers both the nose and mouth at all times while visiting campus. If the visitor does not possess a face covering, one will be provided.
Before traveling, check the list of states and locales by stay-at-home order published by the Rhode Island Department of Health.
All administrative offices, including the Admissions Office, are required to register known visitors or assist them with the process to include completion of the Health Attestation app.
Bryant alumni visiting campus are subject to these same requirements.
