* 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. This figure reflects tests performed, therefore some test results may still be pending.

† From on-campus tests

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 Monday – Friday by 10 a.m. during the fall 2021 semester.
