Who at SUNY New Paltz will be notified of pool test results?
Pool test results from SUNY Upstate Medical University are typically coming in on Tuesday evenings. We anticipate results no later than Wednesday but will report them as soon as they come in.
Only those who test positive will be contacted. If you test positive, you will receive a phone call and follow up email and text message if you don’t answer.
Positive test results will be shared with Student Health Services and (for employees) will also be provided to the Office of Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion for the purpose of supporting absence from work and ensuring proper tracing protocols
Per our communication protocols for COVID-19, the College will announce positive cases that impact our on-campus community, but any individual who tests positive will never be identified.
Those who test negative will not receive automatic notification of their results. If you want to confirm your negative result, you can email the Student Health Service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please wait until the Wednesday after your test to send the email, to ensure test results are available when we receive your request.
