Officials at Cornell University say more than half of its on-campus population has been vaccinated against COVID-19.
The news comes as the University begins easing some restrictions for fully-vaccinated people.
Those who are fully-vaccinated will no longer have to wear a mask when meeting outdoors on-campus. They will also allow organizations and group activities to occur in-person as long as there’s fewer than 30 people there.
The number of people that can take part in university-sponsored events will increase from 100 indoors to 200 outdoors, depending on the venue.
Cornell has already said that it will require full-vaccination by the fall for all students who want to attend in-person.
