Coronavirus Cases within the Cornell Tech Campus Community

To date, Cornell Tech has been notified of two confirmed cases of the coronavirus within our campus community. We were notified of the first confirmed case on March 24.

Despite the rate of COVID-19 cases in New York City decreasing, public health officials continue to recommend good personal hygiene practices, social distancing (minimize the number of interactions that provide the opportunity for the disease to spread) and avoiding contact with others if you feel ill as the best ways to help stop the spread of the virus.
