NY colleges will go remote if COVID-19 spikes

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) tightened public health regulations for colleges and universities, announcing if a school has 100 Covid-19 cases or an outbreak equal to 5% of the campus population, it is required to transition to remote learning for two weeks while the situation is evaluated, according to Forbes.

Cuomo warned that several colleges in other states have seen large outbreaks since reopening and that schools should be prepared, saying, “when you have large congregations of people, anticipate a cluster.”
