IU announced Friday masks will be optional at all campuses in indoor areas beginning March 4, according to an IU Today article.
Indoor spaces where masks will be optional include classrooms, residence halls, dining spaces, common areas in buildings and IU Athletic venues.
Masks will still be required in healthcare settings and research spaces, according to the article.
The decision is a result of state and county public health orders expected to expire on March 4 as well as declining COVID-19 cases at IU and in Indiana, according to the article.
IU will still distribute KN95 and N95 masks.
