Coronavirus Update: March 11March 11, 2020
Dear College Community,
There is no other way to put it: I am as stunned as you by the Governor's announcement in the past hour regarding SUNY colleges.
I ask of you patience. SUNY has two follow up phone calls this afternoon. Our college has a board meeting tonight. Our EMT had already planned to meet Thursday morning.
Simply put, leadership needs time to digest what has been said, SUNY's nuancing of it, to compare it with the plans we were preparing. I pledge to give you a meaningful update tomorrow afternoon.
There are no COVID-19 cases in Orange County and none on our campuses. Absent this announcement from the Governor there were no plans to immediately move operations away from our physical campuses.
I appreciate your patience as we put together communications that are clear and informed.
Please direct questions to Cabinet members. We met this morning and they were up to speed on all we knew as of 11:00 AM this morning.
