Summer and Fall 2021

Safe Smart Ready logo with elbow bump illustrationWe look forward to seeing you on campus this summer and fall! For the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, we ask that you familiarize yourself with the guidelines below before you arrive.

• Do not come to campus if you have any COVID-like symptoms, tested positive for COVID-19, were exposed to someone who has tested positive or are quarantined

• Non-vaccinated individuals are asked to wear facial coverings when inside campus buildings

  • Vaccinated individuals are not required to wear facial coverings (faculty, staff and students should submit proof of vaccination to Human Resources and the Registrar's Office, respectively)

 

SUNY Adirondack strongly encourages vaccination to help keep our entire community safe.

FAQs

SUNY Adirondack is committed to the health of our students, faculty, staff and greater community. Facial coverings are required on campus for individuals who are not fully vaccinated. Regular sanitizing of shared resources will continue and hand-sanitizing stations will still be offered throughout campus.

More details and updated guidance from the CDC, SUNY and the New York State Department of Health will be provided in the coming months.

While the majority of SUNY Adirondack's courses will be held in person this fall, the college offers some courses online and has hybrid options.

SUNY Adirondack strongly encourages vaccination. As of May 10, 2021, New York's governor announced that all SUNY and CUNY campuses will mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for all on-campus students once the vaccinations receive full FDA approval, rather than the current emergency use authorization. Therefore, no final decision has been made as of this writing. We will share updates as they are received. 

As part of the reopening of SUNY campuses across New York state, our schools are answering the call for transparency and public safety by providing statistics on the COVID-19 case count at each SUNY campus and community.

The SUNY Case Tracker is an up-to-date dashboard that provides data on COVID-19 testing and other vital information at each of our 64 colleges and universities. Individual campuses submit data daily, and the dashboard loads data hourly from the database. The data can be viewed on a system-wide or campus-by-campus level.
