The Three Village Civic Association posted later on Sunday that “due to a worldwide shortage, Stony Brook University Hospital did not receive the swabs needed to conduct their COVID-19 drive-thru testing as planned and is now on hold.”
Spring break, originally scheduled for March 16 to March 20, will be extended until March 27. The announcement comes only two days after the university officially announced that it would be moving classes online.
International students at Stony Brook University will be able to remain in the United States to complete their coursework, according to a March 11 email from Stony Brook University Visa and Immigration Services.
