COVID-19 Update: New York State Changes Policy for Masking on Public Transportation
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
Earlier this week, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul announced that effective immediately, masks are no longer required on public transportation in the state of New York. As such, effective today Syracuse University will transition to a masking optional policy for passengers traveling on campus buses, trolleys and other forms of University-provided shared transportation. As always, we continue to support members of our campus community who make a personal choice to wear a mask in any setting or situation while on campus.
Please note, New York State policy has not changed related to masking in health care settings. This means that masks continue to be required in all health care facilities at the Barnes Center at The Arch.
As always, we will continue to keep the campus community informed of any additional changes or updates to New York State, Onondaga County and/or Syracuse University’s public health guidance. We appreciate your ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of our campus community and our neighbors.
J. Michael Haynie
Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation
