Statement from CICU Interim President Dr. Drew Bogner on Governor Cuomo’s COVID-19 Testing Plan for Higher Ed

"We appreciate Governor Cuomo outlining a path for our colleges to continue in-person educational activities while maintaining the health and safety of their communities. We remain committed to providing a safe environment for our students and faculty and the communities across the state where we are located. To that end, as of February 10, New York's Independent Sector colleges and universities have conducted 1.92 million tests since the beginning of the fall semester with an overall positivity rate of 0.33 percent. Safety continues to be a top priority and colleges will remain vigilant in our efforts to keep campuses open and safe."
