ITHACA, N.Y. (WSYR) — Like many businesses, higher education is feeling the budget impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ithaca College is furloughing nearly 200 employees, for now, according to the school’s athletic director.

I would not be surprised if there would be additional furloughs from our department. I know athletics won’t be immune from what the college has to do college-wide.
