ONEONTA, NY – The coronavirus is starting to have an effect on classes and sporting events at local colleges.
Hartwick College announced in an email sent out Monday, that all non-conference men’s and women’s lacrosse games scheduled for the next nine days have been canceled due to the coronavirus.
Paula Lee Hobson, Hartwick College Vice President for College Advancement, says they are doing everything they can to ensure the health and safety of their students.
“Hartwick suspended all non-essential travel for groups and individuals because of our concerns for the community. With the suspension of non-essential travel, that meant that non-conference games would be canceled for the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams for the week of March 9 and March 16.”
Hartwick is not the only area college making changes.
Syracuse, Colgate, and Cornell Universities will all be utilizing online classes for the foreseeable future following their spring breaks.
