Dear Ithaca College Staff and Faculty:

As you may be aware, Governor Cuomo communicated on Friday, March 20, that as part of the “New York State on PAUSE” executive order, all non-essential businesses or entities must reduce their on-site personnel to zero by 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 22. According to guidance issued by the New York State Department of Economic Development (d/b/a Empire State Development), businesses or entities that provide both essential and non-essential services (like Ithaca College) may continue to provide the essential services because the operations that are necessary to support the essential services are exempt from the mandated on-site personnel reduction. Some examples of our essential services include public safety, facilities, IT, dining, health services, and residential life. It is important to note that Governor Cuomo made it clear that his executive order will be enforced for the safety of New York State residents.

When life surprises us with challenges like those we’re encountering around COVID-19, we might struggle to feel connected: to ourselves, to each other, to a sense of routine or stability. In times like these, having some tools to help us manage the discomfort or maybe even the grief that comes from uncertainty and the changing of plans is valuable.
