We have received results from all pooled saliva testing conducted Tuesday. Two student pools were positive, and one employee pool from the Norwich Campus was positive. Reflex testing is underway. Affected individuals have been informed. All other pools were negative.

Mandatory pooled saliva testing is underway Tuesday in the Rec Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for all students and employees. Norwich Campus testing is every Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Thanks to high compliance with prearrival and on-arrival testing, and few positive cases, residential students may visit with one another between residence halls, as long as they wear masks properly and keep physical distance. No more than two residents may visit another resident at a time; no more than 10 people total can be in a suite in Commons at any time. Nonresidential guests are still prohibited for the time being.

More information is available on the college's recently updated COVID-19 webpages. SUNY also maintains a comprehensive dashboard of COVID-19 testing and infection rate status across the system and at each campus.

Thank you for complying with testing and daily screening requirements (Campus COVID Screening app for employees) to keep the campus safe.
