All members of the Cornell community who are physically present on campus will need to work together and commit to following our safety guidelines to minimize the risks we collectively take. If a violation is observed, we will first take an educational approach. However, if unsafe behavior continues, you may be asked to withdraw from the program. No refunds will be issued in such circumstances. 

Additional safety measures

  • Cornell faculty and staff and other summer program participants will also be required to wear a face-covering and complete the symptom checker each day.

  • Cleaning procedures and materials have been enhanced. Our cleaning service personnel have all completed extensive training on updated cleaning methods in response to COVID-19.

  • Hand sanitizer and surface cleaning materials are available at the main entrance of every building.

  • Randomized and stratified COVID-19 testing will be conducted.

  • You may request a COVID-19 test if you become symptomatic.

  • Structural mitigation measures are in place (plexiglas shields, one-way staircases, closed common spaces, airflow and filtering upgrades, drinking fountains turned off).

  • Dining modifications are in place which allows social distancing.

  • Classroom seating charts will assist with contract tracing, should it become necessary. 

  • Office procedure modifications are in place (make appointments before going to an office; more transactions conducted virtually).
