REMINDERS: Ice Cream Social TOMORROW and More
As more of us have begun to return to campus today, here are just a few reminders to help us all thrive this summer and fall … Stronger Together.
Reminder #1: ICE CREAM
Join us for a free Ice Cream Social tomorrow – Wednesday, July 7, 12-2 pm – outside the Stony Brook Union (rain location: Student Union lobby). Student Affairs will also be hosting an Open House event called Stony Brook Union: Yesterday and Today – with tours every 20 minutes highlighting the new, and improved, Union and where to find all the services you need.
Reminder #2: Submit Your Full Vaccine Status for Relaxed COVID Protocols
On June 23, we shared a Coming Back Safe and Strong Update highlighting new COVID protocols from the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER), including more relaxed guidance for fully vaccinated individuals, including no need to physically distance, wear a mask, test weekly or self-screen daily in non-healthcare settings. If you haven’t yet, you can submit your full vaccination status simply and directly on your personal SOLAR account. Click here for instructions.
Reminder #3: Affirm That You’ve Read and Will Follow GOER Guidance
By this Friday, July 9 (or within three business days of returning to campus for remote workers), New York State requires that all State employees affirm they have read and understand their obligation to follow GOER’s revised guidance and its provisions. It’s easy and can be accomplished right on SOLAR. Find detailed instructions here: Revised Workplace Guidance – Instructions.
Be sure to check out/bookmark our new Stronger Together website, with a page highlighting the Latest COVID19 Guidance. There’s also a Calendar of Events featuring seminars, live entertainment and opportunities for informal gatherings with others on campus. In addition to films at the Staller Center and exhibits at the Zuccaire Gallery, you’ll find a HealthierU nutrition-based ‘pop-up tent, Yoga on the Staller Steps and well-being walks.
We look forward to sharing more news over the coming weeks and months.
