BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WROC) — Being quarantined in a strange dorm room on a campus you’re not familiar with is a difficult situation, but having to do that on your birthday is even tougher.
To help lift the spirits of one quarantined student, Brockport community members gathered outside Gordon Hall Tuesday to sing “Happy Birthday” to a student named Veronica.
Earlier this week, SUNY and CUNY students were recalled from study abroad programs in countries affected by the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus.
A public meeting in the adjacent Town of Sweden will be held Tuesday where community members expect to learn more about what this quarantine site means for them, and what potential risk the situation may present.
Check back with News 8 WROC as we will have more on that public meeting later tonight.
