Update: June 18, 2021, 8:00 a.m.
Earlier this week, offices and departments across campus submitted plans to their vice presidents, Human Resource Management, and Environmental Health and Safety outlining their steps for a safe return to full on-campus operations this fall.
As noted in our guidance, we are working toward a full return to in-person operations by Monday, August 2, as we prepare for an exciting fall semester for our students.
Review of these office and department plans are underway, and approvals will be communicated to units soon. Any area that has yet to submit a plan to its respective vice president, Human Resource Management, and Environmental Health and Safety is asked to please do so by Monday, June 21.
It has been exciting to see so many of our colleagues returning to campus this month, with many more returning in a staggered fashion in July, joining those who have been on campus throughout the pandemic. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your perseverance and dedication over the past year and a half as we mitigated the impact of the virus while continuing to provide a meaningful and rewarding educational experience for our students.
New York State Reaches 70 Percent Vaccination Milestone
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced plans on Tuesday to relax most COVID-19 restrictions in New York State, as 70 percent of adults 18 years or older have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, the governor’s announcement has not changed campus health and safety guidelines for summer operations on campus. We continue to follow existing guidelines for masks in common indoor spaces and weekly surveillance testing for those who are not yet vaccinated.
We expect to receive guidance from SUNY System Administration regarding protocols for the fall semester in the coming weeks, and we will continue keep the campus community apprised as plans evolve.
