The Office of the President

Dear Members of the SUNY Oswego Campus Community,

Effective immediately, masks  are required for all students and employees, both vaccinated and unvaccinated in all indoor spaces, settings and events, including the classroom, except when eating or drinking.

As we continue to prioritize the health and safety of all members of the SUNY Oswego campus community we study the best data in our region daily and remain flexible in our guidance relative to what we know. With the transmission of the COVID-19 virus (Delta variant) growing in communities across New York State, we felt we must modify the guidance related to masks that I shared this past Friday.

This mask requirement will be in effect through September 27, 2021 -- at which time we will assess the vaccination rate on our campus and the state of the virus on our campus and in surrounding communities.

In addition, we have developed an FAQ section on the Oswego Forward website based on the questions we have been receiving from students and their families. Please remember to check the Oswego Forward website regularly for updates and pertinent communication.

If you have any questions, please direct them to


Deborah F. Stanley
