SUNY Cortland Extends Online Instruction
Binghamton University is reporting 4 new positive tests for the coronavirus in campus-administered tests over the past three days, 15 in the past seven days, for a total of 174 cases to date. The campus went on a two-week pause October 8.
Meanwhile, another New York college campus in the region that had temporarily switched to online classes because of the coronavirus is extending it for another two weeks.
The State University of New York at Cortland says remote learning will now be in effect through November 3.
The initial switch from in-person classes had been announced on October 5.
The state had set a threshold of 100 coronavirus cases as a trigger for remote learning for at least two weeks. SUNY Cortland hit that mark to necessitate the initial suspension, and had 166 new cases since October 10, resulting in the need for the extension.
According to the SUNY COVID Tracker, Cortland has recorded 198 total cases to date with 33 in just the last three days and 80 over the last seven days.
