"We believe an informed community is a safe community; therefore, we have created a COVID-19 online case dashboard for the fall semester. The online dashboard will be regularly updated as new cases of COVID-19 are identified this semester. Students, faculty, and staff members are encouraged to bookmark the dashboard and monitor it throughout the year. Campuswide e-mails will not be issued after each positive test. Campuswide notifications will be reserved for larger outbreaks that may affect operations." ~ Buffalo State College President Katherine Conway-Turner via WKBW
Students who test positive for COVID-19 will be quarantined in North Wing. Students who don't live on campus and any faculty or staff who test positive will quarantine at their homes. Students can get coronavirus information from the College here.
"I am excited to announce that Buffalo State College is planning to safely restart on-campus operations this fall with a mix of in-person, hybrid, and online courses. We are Ready to Roar Again!" ~ Buffalo State College President Katherine Conway-Turner
There seem to be breakouts at quite a few colleges. According to a CNN TV report, more than 20,000 college students have tested positive for COVID-19 in 36 states. It seems like this is just going to be part of the "new normal."
