Dear Campus Community,
We hope you had a successful fall semester. Even in the face of many challenges associated with COVID-19, we were able to engage as a community and to experience activities — both inside and outside of the classroom — that were simply not possible last year. We are so grateful and know these successes would not have been possible without the care and attention of each of you to yourselves, each other and our community.
SUNY Morrisville is actively planning for return to campus for the Spring 2022 semester. We are closely monitoring both the increase in COVID-19 cases and the new Omicron variant. Many individuals are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine booster. SUNY Morrisville strongly encourages all members of our campus community, including students, faculty and staff, to consider receiving a booster vaccine once eligible. We recommend getting your COVID-19 booster vaccine while you have some down time during winter break.
This fall and winter, the flu virus and the COVID-19 virus are both spreading. Vaccination is the best defense against both COVID-19 and the flu. We recommend all members of our campus community also consider getting a flu shot during winter break. Almost every county in New York State is reporting widespread flu activity, especially in the young adult population. The flu vaccine can reduce the risk of more serious flu outcomes and may make your illness milder if you do get sick. Flu vaccines are available at most pharmacies.
Have a safe, healthy and happy holiday season.
