[TRAFFIC NOISE] ANNE JONES: We are thrilled to be able to administer vaccine here on campus with the help of Cayuga Health Systems and Tompkins County Health Department, who's making it possible for us to bring vaccine right here on campus for students.
KIM OVERBY: I tell all the students that it's so great that they're doing this, because it's not only protecting themselves, but it's also protecting the broader community. And it's really a statement that they're doing that. But it's so important to bring the vaccine to where people need it. And so having it come to the students makes a lot of sense. And so I was really excited when we could offer that.
RYAN LOMBARDI: Our hope is that the fall looks substantially different than this past year. As people know, we've instituted a requirement for the vaccine, And so we're hopeful that that will get us to a place where we can be as close to normal as is safe in the fall. I think there will still be some guidelines and some changes in our behavior that will still have to continue.
We'll probably still continue to see masks for a while, some of that kind of stuff. But we really want to get back to all in-person classes, identification level that we're accustomed to. The students I spoke to were very appreciative that this is available here on campus. So they felt it was smooth, it was quick, it was easy, and they were just grateful to have the chance.
