SU, Cornell University and OCC: vaccinated students, faculty and staff no longer need COVID-19 testing or masks

Local News

CENTRAL NEW YORK (WSYR-TV) — Starting on Tuesday at Cornell and Syracuse University, all students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, or should have filed a medical or religious exemption. At SU, faculty and staff are also required to be vaccinated.

A spokesman with Onondaga Community College also said that similar policies went into effect May 20.

Fully vaccinated students, faculty and staff are no longer required to wear masks indoors or outdoors while on campus at these schools. SU, Cornell and OCC say fully-vaccinated staff no longer need tests. SU is also ditching the testing requirement for vaccinated students.

Unvaccinated students at all three schools still need to follow scheduled testing.

If you’re visiting other college campuses in the area, it’s best to call ahead to see what COVID-19 policies are in place.
