Cornell University has started the requirement of mask wearing on their campuses in Geneva and Ithaca.
Tompkins County Health Department changed its guidance with the spike in positive Covid-19 cases, suggesting masks regardless of vaccination status.
The new requirement has students and staff masking up unless they’re in a private, non-shared space like an office, dorm, or when eating.
Ithaca College has also enforced mask requirements.
