ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — SUNY launched a new campaign this week to help promote COVID-19 health and safety protocols, preventing the spread on campuses.

SUNY officials are telling students it's time to "Mask Up or Pack Up."


Currently, more than 1,400 cases of COVID-19 have been reported across SUNY's 64 colleges in the state since the fall semester began. About half of those were at SUNY Oneonta before the campus was forced to shut down.

SUNY requires campuses to suspend in-person classes for two weeks if 100 people at a school test positive for the virus within a 14-day period.

To track the number of cases on your SUNY campus, check out the SUNY COVID-19 dashboard here.
