BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - Northeastern University is the latest school to announce the removal of most of its remaining Covid-19 restrictions, as key metrics in the pandemic show cases dropping significantly since the beginning of January.

The school made the announcement on Tuesday that beginning immediately, in-person events and gatherings can be hosted once again without review. University-sponsored travel will also begin again, however those traveling will still be required to register with the school's safety and security committee.

Starting Wednesday, visits from non-Northeastern guests will also be allowed in the residence halls, as long as they are vaccinated, wearing a mask and follow rules set for housing and student life.

Students, faculty and staff are all required to be fully vaccinated and boosted. Indoor masking continues to be a requirement, along with weekly Covid-19 testing on all campuses.

University officials said they will continue to monitor the situation and plan to update policies for the school as Covid-19 transitions from a pandemic to an endemic stage.
