What you should know


  • CCRI requires that students attending in-person classes provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, including a booster. For more information see
    • If you have NOT already provided the college with your vaccine documentation, students should email their name, CCRI ID and a photo of their vaccine information to [email protected]


Persons considered to be at extreme risk should consider being vaccinated.

Flu Season 

It is flu season and flu vaccines are now available at most with Minute Clinic and Walmart pharmacies by appointment and are covered by most health insurances.

As we know, symptoms of the flu mimic those of Covid-19 and the two can be mistaken. One major difference between the two is the loss of taste and smell characteristic with Covid-19. It would be helpful to mention that not everyone who tests positive for Covid-19 experiences this symptom as they vary from person to person. The best way to determine if it is Covid is by testing. Home testing is acceptable.

  • Do not come to campus if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or the Flu until you have been cleared by your PCP.
  • In the event of a positive COVID-19 test, please contact your doctor and [email protected] for further instructions on quarantine protocol. 

ALWAYS remember to continue using the same sanitizing measures

  • wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm or hot water,
  • sanitize your hands between activities or when touching many different things,
  • always sanitize before eating. 


CCRI will offer free and confidential HIV testing on campus. Hepatitis B tests will also available at the same time. Walk-ins welcome, no appointment necessary. [More info on HIV]
