Until there is an effective vaccine for COVID-19, we live in a world of significantly enhanced community and personal health risks.

To do so will necessitate behaving, both on campus and off campus, in ways that at times will be difficult and may feel constrained, but are crucial both for Cornell Tech and for the greater community in which we live.
