As we prepare to welcome students back to our campuses over the next few weeks, a reminder that as of this Monday, August 15, staff members are required to work 70% of the time in person as it was in Spring 2022.
Under the York College Fall 2021 Reopening Plan, groups who wish to hold extracurricular gatherings are permitted to do so, so long as appropriate COVID-19 precautions are in place.
In response torevised guidance issued by the CDC last week, we are lifting the temporary mask mandate that has been in place since August 2021 and required all CUNY students, faculty, staff and visitors to wear masks inside University campuses, office buildings, classrooms and other non-enclosed spaces.

Governor Hochul Announces 13 New State Testing Sites Across New York Amid Recent Surge in COVID-19 Cases
The start of the Fall 2021 semester is fast approaching, with one month to go before the first day, August 25. We know that this is a confusing and difficult time for many as we continue to receive information about the pandemic from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), New York State, and CUNY. There is still time for you to do what you can to help prepare for a strong and successful fall semester. How do you do that? Here are a few suggestions
Staff and Faculty, as we draw closer to the start of an increasingly in-person Fall 2021 semester, I want to share details of an important piece of the University’s reopening plan that mandates regular testing for anyone who is unvaccinated or who chooses not to disclose their vaccination status.
In higher education, the month of May holds significant meaning: it is the last month of the Spring semester, a time of graduation for some, and a welcome vacation for others. This year the symbolism is greater: we have completed one of the most challenging academic years in recent history. I thank each and every one of you for the significant role you played throughout this journey. As the Chancellor noted in his February correspondence, we have built a strong foundation of online and hybrid teaching, thanks to our faculty; we have offered remote student and employee services, thanks to dedicated staff; and we continue to provide essential services on campus through the work of frontline employees, who have been on campus since the outbreak a year ago. Like you, we are looking forward to receiving further guidance from CUNY on reopening plans, and we are optimistic that, given current national trends, we can look forward to a greater in-person presence on campus in the coming Fall, always keeping in mind your concerns and ensuring everyone’s health and safety. As the Fall planning evolves, we will remain flexible as the city, state, and national landscapes are changing daily in response to COVID-19 victories and challenges; therefore, I will keep you informed and part of the solution as we move forward as “One York”.
