Cornell has announced much looser parking regulations from March 17-April 10.
In order to relieve some of the burden and stress on Cornell community members who must be on campus during this public health emergency, Cornell Transportation will not enforce regular parking permit restrictions, with the exception of a few areas, March 17 through Friday, April 10, 2020.
People may park in most permit-restricted or Parkmobile spaces during this period, with no permit or payment required. Cornell Transportation will continue to enforce fire lanes, loading zones, no parking areas, accessible spaces, and reserved spaces, including the client spaces at the Veterinary College.
Cornell Transportation will continue to monitor the availability of parking, and will make a final determination as to the resumption of regular enforcement by April 10.
(As an aside, this suggests that Cornell plans to keep staff working at home as possible through at least April 10)
This probably also means that there would be little problem with parking near the track, say, but the decent thing to do would be to not park in really valuable spaces near central campus, so as to leave those for staff who still need to come in.
