It is important to stress to our students, faculty and staff that we care deeply for all members of our campus community. Leadership continues to monitor the health and safety of our campus, talk to SUNY officials regularly, and engage in the careful review of local conditions with healthcare experts and our partners from the Oswego County Health Department.
We stand with you and beside you in our continued efforts to mitigate the COVID-19 virus but also to learn to live with it as we work to provide you with a safe, vibrant, and active living-learning environment where we can all thrive and grow.
The currently posted guidance is subject to change at any time depending on evolving metrics and conditions.
State University of New York Chancellor John B. King, Jr. announced on July 28, 2023 that a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer be mandated for students to attend SUNY's 64 campuses, effective for summer courses. This coincides with the official end of the national public health emergency by President Biden's administration on April 10, 2023.
Moving forward, COVID-19 vaccinations will be strongly encouraged for students, which is consistent with the guidelines for other viruses, including influenza. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to stay up to date on vaccinations. View SUNY's updated COVID-19 guidance for Summer/Fall 2023 (PDF).
