6/16/21: UB reviewing COVID-19 protocols as New York State eases health and safety restrictions

The University at Buffalo is aware of Governor Cuomo’s recent announcement to relax most COVID-19 restrictions in NYS after 70% of adults 18 years or older have received at least one shot (dose) of vaccine. On June 3, UB released its health and safety guidelines for the summer months, and is currently waiting for further guidance from SUNY in light of the governor’s recent announcement. Until that time, the university will continue to follow its current health and safety guidelines regarding face coverings, surveillance testing and physical distancing. The university continues to strongly urge students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
