A few minutes ago, Governor Kathy Hochul announced a plan to combat COVID-19 in New York State, which includes new guidelines for SUNY and CUNY colleges.

We expect to receive guidance and details about this plan and its impact on CUNY shortly.  As always, we will communicate this information to you and our students as quickly and transparently as possible.

We recognize that as with any news briefing, there will be questions and a need for clarity in specific situations. However, if you wish to watch the press conference you may do so online​ (CUNY/SUNY announcement starts at 14 minutes and 40 seconds).

Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.
