While the world has celebrated the arrival of highly effective vaccines against COVID-19, new work by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and the University of Oxford shows that even unrelated vaccines could help reduce the burden of the pandemic.
President Martha E. Pollack, Provost Michael Kotlikoff and Vice President for Student and Campus Life Ryan Lombardi announced safety measures for students returning to Cornell's Ithaca campus for the spring semester.
In a significant move to fight COVID-19 and other contagious pathogens in health care settings, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted Sterifre Medical, Inc. registration to begin commercial deployment of the company’s novel, automated device disinfectant system.
COVID-19 vaccination of expectant mothers elicits levels of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 outer “spike” protein at the time of delivery that don’t vary dramatically with the timing of vaccination during pregnancy and thus don’t justify delaying vaccination, according to a study from researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine.
Researchers set out to model the probability of how often pairs of shoppers might overlap in a store – an approach that could be used to predict the transmission of COVID-19, and guide strategies to reduce its spread.
Cornell will require all students, faculty and staff to have a COVID-19 vaccine and booster as part of comprehensive vaccination. The booster requirement must be met by Jan. 31, or 30 days after becoming eligible.
