COVID-19 Testing

Masked Panther

Coming to campus? Get tested.

*IT IS STRONGLY ENCOURGED THAT YOU BE TESTED IF YOU COME TO CAMPUS FOR ANY REASON*

As we are seeing an increase in positive cases in Tompkins, Cortland, and many surrounding counties, we need to remain vigilant about all of our safety practices while on and off campus. We know that robust testing finds positive cases and allows for them to be isolated to prevent community spread. We are STRONGLY ENCOURAGING anyone who comes to campus to register for a test through the process outlined below. Our goal is for 50 commuters, 50 faculty/staff, and 50 residential students to be tested each week. Saliva testing takes 10-15 minutes and is conveniently located on campus in the Multi-Purpose room in the athletics facility. #MASKUP #STAYSAFE #GETTESTED

MONDAY, OCT. 12 RESULTS: The first round of saliva testing on Monday tested 50 individuals from the TC3 community and yielded no positives.
