The following was sent in an email to all SUNY Cortland students this afternoon by Director of Communications Fred Pierce, following this morning’s executive order by Gov. Andrew Cuomo banning unnecessary travel across the state.
“SUNY Cortland students;
In line with Gov Andrew Cuomo’s request that people avoid any unnecessary travel, SUNY Cortland wants to assure students that they may delay returning to campus to retrieve belongings.
Our current plan for scheduled pick-ups of student property from residence hall rooms will continue for those able to travel. Students wishing to collect things over the next nine days should register to do so using the online Housing Intent form.
If, however, students do not want to or are unable to travel to campus at this time, they do not need to. We will keep their property safe and arrange for them to come to campus at a later date.
Students and parents should continue to look for new information on SUNY Cortland’s COVID-19 resource and update page.
Everyone’s top priority at this time should be their personal health and all who they come in contact with. Please follow recommended precautions and stay safe.”
