The announcement makes New York the first state with such a sprawling public higher education system to do so."CUNY and SUNY, starting March 19th, will move to a distance learning model," Cuomo said.

"The SUNY/CUNY campuses, they will be releasing students to the best of their ability starting March 19," he said. "If students have hardships where they have nowhere to go and they're dorm students, then I'm sure individual campuses will take that into consideration."As of March 11, more than 100 campuses have either cancelled in-person classes, moved courses online, asked students to leave campus or taken a variety of other measures to safeguard against the virus, according to one unofficial count. The World Health Organization officially classified the Press Release Distribution Los Angeles Services coronavirus as a pandemic on Wednesday. Beth Garvey, special counsel to the governor, said they are in communication with each campus to ensure classes can be delivered online and each campus will roll out the next steps as they see fit."There may be certain applications where personal instruction is still required, like lab settings," Garvey explained. "So the campuses are not themselves going to be closed, but the goal is to reduce the congregation of multiple students. So staggered class times, maybe breaking up classes into smaller units, things of that nature."

What 's The Danger News Update

Notably, students will not be forced to leave campus and the campuses will not close entirely."Dorms may stay open to accommodate particular student situations," Garvey said. "What we are trying to do in coordination with SUNY and CUNY is to reduce the congregation of large numbers of people in classroom settings. So students will be able to return home if that's what they want to do, and continue their studies at a distance, either through online or other mechanisms. But what we don't expect that we're going to do on March 19 is say, 'Everyone must find a new place to be.'""They're not evicting anyone," Cuomo clarified. "They're not closing the dorm and kicking you out. They are going to distance learning. You can go home, do it by distance, go wherever you want to go and do it by distance. If you have nowhere to go and that is a situation, then SUNY will work it out so that you can stay in the dorm."
