PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Following the Governor’s declaration that masks will no longer be required indoors beginning Jan. 28, Bradley University is falling in line.

Administration made the announcement Friday after saying the CDC has made indications it will also ease the federal mask mandate soon.

Effective Monday, Feb. 28, masks will only be required in the following areas:

  • Classrooms and labs
  • Health and Counseling Services
  • BUPD Safety Cruiser
  • University events when requested by speaker or performer
  • In a private office or residence, if the occupants request it
