An update on COVID-19

04/29/2022 

Dear campus community,

On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reclassified Cortland County’s COVID-19 community level as “high.”

This metric considers factors such as case rate and local hospital admissions. These figures are rising in our area.

The CDC recommends that all individuals wear face coverings indoors in public and on public transportation. Individuals should also stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters and get tested if they have symptoms. Those who are at high risk for severe illness should consider taking additional precautions.

SUNY Cortland strongly encourages the use of face coverings in public indoor spaces for all members of the campus community. To be clear, this is not a mandate. Face coverings are not required. However, they are an additional tool, beyond surveillance testing and the high rate of vaccination among students, faculty and staff, we can use to help limit the spread of the virus.

The university continues to work with partners at the state Department of Health and the Cortland County Health Department to assess and monitor the situation.

If you do experience any COVID-19 symptoms, please take a test. You may use the state’s online portal to find a site that is convenient for you. If you do test positive, please stay home.

The next few weeks will be an exciting and rewarding conclusion to this semester. I ask that you please be mindful of COVID-19 and make this period as safe as possible for all members of our campus community.

 

 

All the best,

 

Erik J. Bitterbaum

President
