I want to inform you that faculty and staff and SUNY Cortland’s Student Health Service are hearing about positive cases of COVID-19 among our students. The pandemic is still with us, but I believe that the university’s vaccine requirement and your attention to COVID-19 safety policies make this a safe place to live, work and study.
It is important that each of us take seriously our personal responsibility to protect the health of our campus community. A reminder was shared with residential students on Wednesday.
Additional information on SUNY Cortland’s policies is available on the COVID-19 safety information page, which is regularly updated.
You know the best and most common ways to stay safe. Stay up-to-date with vaccines and boosters and consider getting a booster dose. Wash your hands frequently. Wear a well-fitting face covering in public settings. Most importantly, stay home if you are sick.
I ask that you be mindful of all members of the campus community during this time. Please test if you are symptomatic and stay home if you are positive. This is the best way to keep SUNY Cortland healthy and safe.
All the best,
Erik J. Bitterbaum
