MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – SUNY Morrisville’s reopening plan for the fall has been approved by the State University of New York, and the school intends to welcome students back Aug. 24.
The plan includes a condensed physical semester, with in-person classes ending Nov. 20. Classes scheduled to continue after that time, or any work still due, will be completed remotely. Several classes will also incorporate distance learning throughout the term.
School officials say new safety protocols will include social distancing, personal protective equipment like masks, updated cleaning procedures and screenings for symptoms.
The college is also capping the number of students that can be on campus during move-in week from Aug. 17 -21. A maximum of 200 students will be allowed to move in per day, and will be required to fill out a questionnaire regarding any COVID-19 symptoms and have their temperatures taken.
Students, faculty and all other campus visitors will also be required to wear masks.
According to school officials, the plan is subject to change, pending further direction from New York State.
