CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - While some campuses across Northeast Ohio are beginning to soften COVID-19 restrictions, the Cuyahoga Community College is keeping their mask requirement in place.

College officials announced this week that masks will still be required in all college buildings through at least two weeks after spring break, which would be until April 4.

According to Cuyahoga Community College, the decision is based on several factors, including recent remarks from Ohio Department of Health director Dr. Bruce Vanderhoff, CDC guidance, and the fact that many students or faculty members may travel during the school break.

The policy will be reassessed after the two-week window, college officials said.
