Will mandatory surveillance testing of students and employees continue in spring 2021?
Yes, all members of our in-person campus population (including students and employees, per bargaining unit agreements with SUNY) will be subject to mandatory COVID-19 surveillance testing, with options for getting tested on campus or submitting results from off-campus facilities.
Our in-person campus population includes anyone who plans to live on campus, work or take classes on campus, or to use campus facilities such as the gym, library or dining hall.
About 20% of our in-person population will be tested every week using a mix of PCR and pool testing.
This surveillance testing will begin on Jan. 19 and will be offered Monday-Friday until Feb. 4.
Information about testing beyond Feb. 4 will be shared with our community and posted in this space as soon as schedules are finalized.
