GUEST ROOM | Cornell Health’s Medical Director: Three Things to Keep in Mind As COVID-19 Cases Surge

I am writing to ask for your help to prevent further spread of COVID-19 at Cornell. As we embark on the first week of classes, we are experiencing a cluster and a surge in cases, many of which are attributable to gatherings in which public health procedures were not followed. It’s not just about wearing masks, physical distancing, and washing hands anymore. In the middle of a local surge in cases, we need to protect ourselves and each other in very specific ways. First, your honesty with contact tracing is a crucial part of containing this surge.
