Info on COVID-19 Safety Plan and Procedures

Welcome back, but first...

Our goal is to keep our community safe and healthy. Here are the policies and guidelines we'll be following on campus. 
Due to the 'substantial' spread of COVID-19 in Onondaga County per the CDC, OCC is asking everyone to wear a mask while indoors. As the risk level changes, we will evaluate our mask policy. 

If you are vaccinated

You are free to use campus and our services without a mask. Let us know that you are vaccinated by filling out a form with proof of vaccine. Acceptable proof is your CDC vaccination card or the NYS Excelsior Pass.

Submit Vaccine Documents

If you're not vaccinated

It is MANDATORY that you wear a mask and practice social distancing. There will be no exceptions to this. If you do not comply, you will be subject to disciplinary action or Campus Safety intervention. 

You will undergo weekly COVID testing. You can review our testing details


Per New York State guidance, and pending approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, SUNY will require all in-person students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to campus this fall. OCC recommends getting your vaccine now to protect the community and be compliant ahead of time. 

SUNY Policies

Get ahead of the spread! You can get vaccinated for free at most pharmacies.
