40 Students Test Positive for COVID at SUNY Albany
While most K through 12 schools are either working remotely or back in school at some capacity, colleges across New York State have been back to "normal" for a few weeks now.
With the Coronavirus pandemic, there have obviously been some changes to the school year when it comes to social distancing and wearing a mask.
Since colleges have been back in session, we've shared different stories about how the coronavirus is effecting campuses across New York and in the Hudson Valley. For example, Marist College had seen several students test positive for COVID-19 after an off-campus party.
Another college a little further north is now making headlines regarding COVID-19 concerns.
According to ABC7 NY, the University of Albany is showing some concern about a recent spike in numbers. Reports show that there are "40 positives cases among SUNY Albany students since the semester started."
SUNY Albany tells ABC7 NY that they are working with health officials and the county health department to "isolate and quarantine impacted students."
Just like Marist, New Paltz and SUNY Oneonta, which has been dealing with its own set of issues when it comes to students following the new COVID-19 protocols if they can't control the spread of the outbreak classes and in person activities will be suspended.
Do you have a child in college living on campus? How do you think the campuses are handling COVID-19? Should they all just stay remote learning for the rest of the semester?
