COVID-19 Dashboards

CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – Students are returning to dorm life next Friday at Corning Community College.

Things will be a bit different with new social distancing and mask guidelines for everyone. The Director of Student Services, Ryan Steinberg, talks about the new changes.

“We are obviously having social distancing and all of our lounges and masks are going to be required in all the hallways,” said Steinberg. “We’ve changed some of our visitor policies, so only current SUNY students CCC students will be able to visit. We don’t have any overnight visitors.”

All visitors will be required to sign in and have their temperatures checked. However, even amid a pandemic, Corning Community College continues to try to create a sense of community for its students.

“We’re still going to have activities we still plan a lot of events, they’re going to look different,” said Steinberg. “So for example, both Friday night and Saturday night of arrival we have movies outside.”

In addition, Steinberg is asking students to check their emails regularly for any updates on the self assessment tests that should be emailed in the near future.
