SUNY Sets Uniform Spring Return Plan With Mandatory COVID Testing, Masks

Nov 9, 2020

After a fall semester marked by some campus shutdowns and other localized COVID-19 problems, the State University of New York system is establishing a system-wide return plan for the Spring 2021 semester. SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras says every student returning to campus will be tested, quarantined for a week, and required to wear masks at all times.

The plan, which includes a Feb. 1 start date, also scraps spring break to discourage student travel. 

Malatras spoke with WAMC's Ian Pickus Monday about the plan.
