SUNY institutions with students who are in study abroad programs in countries with high prevalence of novel coronavirus will act to bring them home, and will review all study abroad programs ahead of potential expanded travel restrictions by the federal government, Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced. SUNY is expected to release guidance later today.
“As the situation with the novel coronavirus continues to evolve, I want the people of New York State to know that their government is doing everything possible to confront and contain it,” Governor Cuomo said. “Last week I proposed a $40 million emergency management authorization to ensure New York State has the resources necessary to most effectively respond.”
Stony Brook will update its guidance in accordance with forthcoming communications from SUNY.
