* 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. This dashboard will be updated by 10 a.m. daily, Monday-Friday.

New Paltz New Firehouse Groundbreaking 01 19 21 on YouTube
Local leaders held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the future New Paltz Firehouse on Jan. 19, 2021. The new facility will be located on Henry W. Dubois Drive and will be larger, more energy efficient and more resilient than the current space on Plattekill Avenue.
Attending the event were President Donald P. Christian (not pictured), New Paltz Mayor Tim Rogers, Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan, Town Supervisor Neil Bettez, Fire Department Chief (and SUNY New Paltz alumnus) Cory Wirthmann '13 (Biology), Lori Dubord '94 (History), an alumna and former Commencement speaker who now works in the Governor's office of Storm Recovery, and Project Architect Rick Alfandre ’80 (Communication Studies), an alumnus who assisted with the project’s design and sustainability elements (not pictured).
Learn more about the project from the New Paltz Public Access video of the groundbreaking, and from this October 2020 Oracle article about the new firehouse.
