Morgan McKay is reporting for State of Politics SUNY students will not return to campus after Thanksgiving break, and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is now asking private colleges to consider doing the same. All SUNY students will be tested before leaving for the Thanksgiving break and continue to learn remotely after that. The statewide COVID-19 infection rate has increased to 1.9 percent and upstate is doing worse than downstate, Cuomo said.

"It would be reckless to open the stadium up to spectators," he said. Read the full story at nystateofpolitics [dot] com.
