ALBANY, N.Y. — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo provided a COVID-19 update on Thursday afternoon with a message for all college students and universities across the state.
Cuomo said that colleges in the state that report 100 coronavirus cases, or a number of cases equal to 5% of the student population, will have to go to remote learning for two weeks then re-evaluate.
This announcement by the governor is in anticipation of clusters on campuses across the state.
Here in Western New York, a handful of colleges and universities have already reported cases on their campuses. You can check out more information on that here.
