Will college resume in the fall? SUNY union lays out what its calling for this year

What will college campuses look like when they return in the fall?

The union that represents SUNY employees has a new set of guidelines.

Those include mandatory and recurring virus testing for everyone on campus, contact tracing, isolation measures and social distancing restrictions.

SUNY campuses closed in mid-March, and have not yet been given the green light by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reopen, despite economic activity ramping up.

He previously announced that there would be no in-person summer classes, and no announcement has been made yet about fall classes. Some are planning for a late start, while others are looking at a bleak outcome if unable to reopen with students on campus in the fall.
