Novel Coronavirus information and updates
Last updated Feb. 12, 2020
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) continue to monitor a novel strain of coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China. Cornell officials are proactively working with local and state public health organizations to monitor this concern and to protect the health and well-being of the Cornell community. At this time, there are no confirmed cases of the Novel Coronavirus (recently renamed COVID-19) in New York state.
