We have received results from all pooled saliva testing conducted Tuesday, March 9. We had a total of eight (8) positive pools this week: Residential Students (6) and Student-Athletes (2).
Affected individuals have been informed and precautionary quarantine notices have been sent out. Case investigation and contact tracing will begin once reflex testing results are available. All other pools were negative.
We are very concerned with the rise in positive cases the past two weeks. We urge all students and employees to please continue to practice physical distancing, properly wear face coverings over your mouth and nose and participate in weekly testing so we can contain the spread of COVID-19. SUNY System sanctions for noncompliance also remain in place and are designed to hold individuals more accountable for behavior that creates a greater risk of spreading COVID-19.
Mandatory pooled saliva testing continues on "Testing 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.
