(WSYR-TV) — New York State has released new guidance for higher education COVID-19 testing.
States and colleges will now be required to test at least 25% of their total on-campus students, faculty, and staff on a weekly basis.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said those tests will determine if the school needs to go on pause.
Colleges can remain open if their positivity rates do not exceed 5% during a 14-day rolling period.
