Cornell is committed to the safety and well-being of our campus and surrounding communities. The fall 2020 semester includes a hybrid approach to a residential semester (with in-person, online and hybrid teaching modalities), robust virus testing, and modifications to the academic calendar allowing students to return home for Thanksgiving to finish the semester remotely.
Faculty and staff approved to research or work on the Ithaca campus must complete the Daily Check before arriving to campus or accessing campus facilities. All students, whether living on campus or in the greater Ithaca area, must complete the Daily Check every day, including weekends.
Students must adhere to the Behavioral Compact, and all members of our community must follow both Cornell and public health guidance, including wearing face coverings, physical distancing, practicing good personal hygiene and avoiding large groups. Campus visitors are prohibited from entering any campus facility, including residence halls.
