Pexels Stock Image.ALBANY — One of the State University of New York’s campuses will shut down for two weeks after more than 100 people in the college community tested positive for the coronavirus, officials announced Sunday.The positive cases at SUNY Oneonta represent about 3% of the students and faculty on campus this semester, said Jim Malatras, the chancellor of the state university system.Malatras, who joined Gov. Andrew Cuomo on a conference call, said five students have been suspended because of large parties that were held last week. He said three rapid-result testing sites will be set up in Oneonta starting Wednesday.The University at Albany, another SUNY campus, also announced Sunday that four students were temporarily suspended from campus after officials investigated large off-campus gatherings over the weekend. The shutdown of the Oneonta campus in central New York is the first in the state, where most colleges are opening with a mix of in-person and online instruction.Cuomo, a Democrat, urged students to follow virus safety guidelines and avoid large gatherings.“I get it,” he said. ”You go back to college. You want to see your friends. Part of the college experience is socializing.”But he said a 3% infection rate is too high because the virus can spread quickly in a congregate setting like a college.Cuomo said New York state’s overall coronavirus infection rate on Saturday was 0.69% based on 100,000 tests conducted statewide. New York’s infection rate has been below 1% every day for more than three weeks.

RelatedPosts Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title Djokovic zooms to 10th Italian Open final Nadal stunned by Schwartzman in Italian Open quarter-finals, Djokovic survives Koepfer Novak Djokovic has been in touch with fellow ATP Player Council members Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal to discuss ways to assist lower-ranked players facing financial struggles amid the novel Coronavirus outbreak, the world number one said on Saturday. Answering a fan’s question during his Instagram live chat with Stan Wawrinka, Player Council chief Djokovic said steps would be taken to ensure that only those players who are most deserving will benefit from any relief plans. “I spoke to Roger and Rafa a few days ago and we had a conversation about the near future of tennis. How we can contribute to help lower ranked guys who are obviously struggling the most,” Djokovic said. “A majority of players ranked between 250 to 700 or 1,000 don’t have federation support or sponsors and are independent and left alone.” The tennis season was suspended in early March due to the pandemic, leaving players in the lower tiers who depend solely on tournament winnings without the chance to earn a living. The plight of players ranked outside the top 100 in singles has prompted the game’s stakeholders — the ATP, WTA, ITF and the organisers of the four Grand Slams — to devise plans to provide some assistance. “Players hopefully will (also) contribute collectively to the relief fund that the ATP (and others) will distribute using models and criteria,” Djokovic added. “You want to avoid giving money to player who fits into this category (low ranking) but does not need the money compared to someone else… hopefully between $3-4.5 million will be distributed to lower-ranked players.” Djokovic, a 17-times Grand Slam champion, said other short-term solutions could include diverting bonus money meant for top players from season-ending events like the ATP Finals into the relief fund. “If we don’t have any events (in 2020), maybe next year’s Australian Open prize money can be contributed to the fund,” the Serb added. “I’m glad the tennis eco-system is coming together. Everyone realises the basis of tennis. These guys ranked 250 onwards are the ones making the future of tennis. “We have to show them they’re not forgotten. We also have to send a message to young players that they can live out of tennis when there’s a financial crisis.” Reuters/NAN.Tags: ATP Player CouncilNovak DjokovicRafa NadalStan Wawrinka
