Consistent with the changes to COVID-19 campus policies and procedures surrounding gatherings that were recently announced, we will be making changes related to the outdoor tents on campus. Some tents will be removed to provide space for student events and activities, while others will remain in place through at least the end of the semester, both to allow individuals who feel more comfortable to eat or socialize outdoors a place to do so, and to have tents in place in case there is a sudden rise in COVID-19 cases.
Beginning Tuesday, February 15, the tent at Low Plaza will be disassembled and removed, followed by the tents at Fairchild Plaza and Weston II Plaza (in front of John Jay Hall) in the days thereafter.
The tents at Dodge Plaza, Ancell Plaza, Hamilton Lawn, and Furnald Lawn will remain in place until approximately Commencement/Alumni Weekend.
As always, we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic status in the New York City metro area and among our affiliates and may make necessary changes to protect the safety of our campus.
