To keep our campus safe for students, faculty, and staff, we all must adhere to the following CDC, and Buffalo State College, COVID-19 protocols, and guidelines.
Buffalo State will require all students this fall to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Full vaccination status is considered to be effective two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine.
All students, faculty, and staff who are not vaccinated will have to wear a mask while on Buffalo State campus (in classes, library, the union, and walking on campus, etc). Unvaccinated students, faculty, and staff will have to participate in weekly surveillance testing. Site, date, and time to be announced.
Students, faculty, and staff who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine), are not required to wear a mask outdoors or social distance while on campus. Please continue to wear your mask indoors. Weekly surveillance testing is not necessary.
SUNY urges any student, faculty member, or staff member who has not yet received a COVID-19 vaccine to do so immediately. Don’t wait. Make a vaccine appointment today by visiting suny.edu/KnowYourVax. The vaccines are safe, effective, and free. We’re all looking forward to getting back to the things we’ve missed over the past year and a half—mask-free conversations, concerts, student clubs, and gathering with friends. That all starts with being fully vaccinated.
As of June 8, 2021, students and employees who can provide valid PROOF of completed vaccination, and the post vaccination two week wait period are exempt from weekly pool testing.
Show valid and completed vaccination card, or provide pictue of, or show on smart phone, the excelsior pass.
