SUNY Morrisville will administer two two-day clinics of pooled saliva testing during the final weeks of the semester. Testing will be done in the Recreation Center, which allows for ample spacing and ventilation as well as separate rooms for pooling.
Volunteer to Assist with Testing
Employees can volunteer to assist with testing. Each sample collection clinic requires 1-2 poolers, 6-8 swab collectors, 3-5 app preppers, or a total of 10-15 clinic helpers.
Testing for Students
For students planning to leave by Friday, Nov. 13, testing will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 3-4.
For students planning to leave by Friday, Nov. 20, testing will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 10-11.
Norwich Campus students are scheduled for testing on Monday, Nov. 9, from 2-4 p.m.
Samples are scheduled for drop-off to SUNY Upstate/Quadrant Biosciences at 11 a.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Students who participate in the first week of testing will have their swipe cards set to deactivate after Friday, Nov. 13. If students delay their departure for any reason, they will participate in another testing session.
Students must participate in one of these testing dates to remain in good standing. Students also risk having their swipe cards shut off until they have submitted a sample. Those who do not comply with SUNY system requirements guiding this plan are subject to student conduct violation review.
Students should not participate in any testing more than 10 days prior to the date they expect to leave campus.
Testing for Employees
We strongly recommend faculty and staff get a test during the same period pursuant to the testing MOUs between the Chancellor and UUP, PEF, CSEA, and the PBA.
All employees are invited to participate in the testing clinics above, or otherwise make arrangements with Human Resources to provide their sample between Nov. 3 and 11. Facilities, Norwich Campus, EOC and Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation employees all have other arrangements in place to test in November. Norwich is set for Monday, Nov. 9, 2-4 p.m.
Employees who are fully remote, or who have not been on campus prior to Oct. 21 and have no intention of returning to campus before Nov. 20, are exempted from this testing effort.
