* While our Active and Recovered case tallies may include individuals who were tested at off-campus facilities, these figures will not be included in the Positivity Rate calculation, which only counts tests that take place on campus.

** 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. Effective May 17, 2021, this Dashboard will be updated by 10 a.m. on any day when there are new COVID-19 cases in our campus community. If there are no new cases to report, we will update the Dashboard at least once per week, to report on on-campus COVID-19 testing.
