As specified by the Chancellor in his August 11, 2022 memo, “70% In-person Work”, CUNY will continue to require employees to work a minimum of 70% of their work schedule in-person.  The 70% in-person work requirement is only extended until December 31, 2022. Similar to the guidance provided for the Spring 2022 semester, employees will be expected to work on campus 7 out of 10 days during a two-week work cycle.  For example, employees can be required to work in-person 4 days and 1 day remote in one week and in the following week 3 days in-person and 2 days remote. As a reminder… Read More »

Dear CUNY Community,  As you are probably aware, New York City’s Covid-19 level is currently high according to the NYC Department of Health’s Alert Level system and the CDC’s Community Level tracking. Health officials recommend we wear a mask in indoor public settings and people over 65 and those at high risk of severe illness should also wear a mask in crowded outdoor spaces. As the semester comes to a close and many of you prepare to attend commencements with your loved ones and friends, we urge you to wear a mask in public indoor spaces – for your safety and that of those… Read More »

Dear CCNY Community, As many of you are aware, CUNY has lifted the temporary mask mandate for all campuses. What does this mean for us? It means that you can now go throughout campus, both indoors and outdoors, without wearing a mask if you so choose. Those who are unvaccinated are still encouraged to wear a mask. I realize that for some of you, this is a concern and one that you are not comfortable with. For those of you who are concerned, the best way to make sure you have enhanced protection under these circumstances—apart from making sure your vaccination is up to date-- is… Read More »

Dear CUNY Community,  In response to revised guidance issued by the CDC last week, we are lifting the temporary mask mandate that has been in place since August 2021 and required all CUNY students, faculty, staff, and visitors to wear masks inside University campuses, office buildings, classrooms, and other non-enclosed spaces. This policy change, which takes effect on Monday, March 7, follows recent announcements by Governor Hochul and Mayor Adams that ended mask mandates for pre-K through 12th-grade schools across New York State and City.  Anyone who would like to continue… Read More »

Dear CCNY Community, The Cleared4 Health Check system is not operational this morning for most individuals.  Public Safety has been notified and will allow entry to your class or work area.  Please only enter the campus if you are vaccinated or have a valid negative COVID test.  As soon as the system is restored I will be updating you. Sincerely, Ken Ihrer Vice President of Operations Chief Information Officer The City College of New York 160 Convent Avenue New York, NY 10031

Dear CCNY Community, As you may have heard, Governor Hochul lifted the mask mandate for New York State.  However, this change in policy does not impact CUNY as of this memo.  CUNY is still enforcing a mask mandate while in CUNY buildings.  Please make sure you are wearing your masks properly while on campus to protect yourself and others. Please note that CCNY has purchased KN95 masks, which are available to you at the security guard stations.  If you need a mask or want a higher quality mask, please ask a security guard for a KN95. If CUNY changes its policy on masking, I am… Read More »

Dear CUNY Community, I hope you were able to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends and, as we look to begin the new year, are cautiously optimistic as I am that 2022 will be a year of positive change. One of the key areas of focus will be recapturing some of the elements that have made CUNY a beacon of student success and social mobility such as campus support services, higher levels of in-person instruction, and student activities. State and city leaders have recognized the importance of restoring in-person activities and instruction as we move ahead in 2022. Last… Read More »
