It is important to acknowledge that while masking and quarantine guidelines have changed, this pandemic has still significantly impacted most students. Some of you may still be experiencing long term effects, such as loss of family members or friends, struggling with long COVID symptoms, or dealing with the impact of remote school on academic and social functioning.
If you have current symptoms, please test and call the Student Health Center at (845) 257-3400. If you are looking for resources for emotional and psychological coping/understanding the impacts, please see links below.
