UAlbany President Havidan Rodriguez will provide an update after the school saw 31 new coronavirus cases in one day.

He will join Albany County Executive Dan McCoy for his daily coronavirus briefing Friday.


The Albany County Department of Health notified the university about a recent and “very concerning spike in COVID-19 cases among students.” The Health Department says if it’s not addressed immediately, it could result in the suspension of in-person classes.

There are 40 confirmed cases on campus, and 31 of those cases were reported within the last 24 hours.
