Operations and COVID-19

This plan has been created based on SUNY and New York State Department of Health guidelines, which focus on ensuring health and safety of our students, visitors, faculty, and staff while sustaining the delivery of quality instruction. 


CCC COVID-19 Plan for Spring 2024

For students who are planning on a presence on campus this semester, SUNY recommends all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 including booster (as soon as you are eligible to receive). Be sure to provide updated materials on vaccinations or booster to Sandra Marland, College Nurse.

While not required at this time, SUNY reserves the authority to impose a requirement for any vaccination or booster at any time because of changes in local conditions or requirements imposed by Federal, State, or local authorities.

All SUNY faculty and staff are also strongly recommended to get vaccinated.

Certain employees, students, and volunteers at healthcare facilities, including SUNY healthcare facilities and hospitals, or any external location, may be subject to mandatory COVID-19 vaccination pursuant to relevant regulations and policies. 

Masks and COVID-19 testing should be available readily as needed, and use should be 
encouraged. Wearing a high-quality mask along with vaccination and self-testing helps reduce transmission of COVID-19.

Get Vaccinated!

  • Local pharmacies offer walk-in vaccinations 
  • Clinton County Health Department offers COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Plattsburgh. Call 518-565-4848 to schedule an appointment.
