* 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.

SUNY New Paltz on Instagram
One of our favorite new campus traditions this time of year takes place at Wooster Hall during the Summer Solstice. The building's main lobby area was designed so that at solar noon on the longest day of the year, sunlight beams down upon the central stairwell, creating a brilliant, perfectly aligned display of light.

From Our Community

 
Nonprofit Resilience in the Time of COVID
For last semester's Alternative Spring Break, New Paltz students pivoted from the typical week-long service activity and instead helped produce a video summit exploring how local nonprofits adapted during the pandemic. "Nonprofit Resilience in the Time of COVID" features students in conversation with representatives from six regional organizations about what "service" means for volunteers as we emerge from the ordeals of the last year.
