Indiana University making masks optional on all campuses March 4

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University will make masks optional on all of its campuses beginning March 4.

The school announced Friday it will no longer require masks in classrooms, residence halls, dining spaces, common areas or at athletics venues. Masks will still be worn in health care and research spaces.  

The university cited a decline in COVID-19 cases at the university and throughout the state.

Aaron Carroll, IU's chief health officer, says whether or not people continue to mask on campus will be personal decisions.

The university said it will continue to distribute KN95 and N95 masks.
