SUNY Schenectady Confirms COVID-19 Cases on Campus
SUNY Schenectady has confirmed today, November 1, 2020, that two members of the College community have tested positive for COVID-19 in the School of Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism. The individuals did not have any direct contact with the public. Out of an abundance of caution, effective immediately, the Casola, Van Curler, Pane e Dolci, and The Boucherie Curbside takeout service are closed, and all classes in the School of Hotel, Culinary Arts, and Tourism will transition to fully virtual for a minimum of two weeks. During this time, campus facilities will undergo a deep cleaning and sanitation as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.
The individuals were last on the College campus on Friday, October 30, 2020, and will not return to the College environment until they are cleared by the Schenectady County Public Health Services (SCPHS). We have been in contact with the local health department and identified the individuals’ close contacts at the College. The health department will reach out to members of our College community who were in close contact with the individuals.
We remind our campus community to stay vigilant outside of school, practice good hygiene,
wear masks and follow social distance guidelines as outlined by the CDC and the New
York State Department of Health. SUNY Schenectady continues to work closely with the
health department to maintain a healthy and safe campus environment.
