FREDONIA – The new CDC masking guidelines are now in effect at SUNY campuses across New York.
The SUNY system announced it adopted the policy last week.
Under the guidelines, people who are fully vaccinated can gather outdoors without wearing masks, except in certain crowded settings and venues.
Masking is still required for students and instructors in all classroom settings, as well as during commencement events, as they are still considered large gatherings.
SUNY leaders anticipate positive feedback from students about the new rules.
The new rule goes into effect immediately.
