** On-campus testing is performed by Enzo Labs, SHS and SUNY Upstate Medical University for all students and employees coming to campus. This figure reflects tests performed, therefore some test results may still be pending.

Active cases are defined as a confirmed positive COVID-19 test among individuals who have been on campus and may have exposed others. Learn more about our testing and tracing protocols here. This dashboard will be updated by 10 a.m. daily, Monday-Friday.
