The College received no new reports of students, faculty or staff with confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of 4 p.m. yesterday, Aug. 27.
The College has developed a new COVID-19 dashboard to provide real-time updates on positive cases that could pose a risk to the on-campus community. The dashboard includes a tally of “active cases,” defined as confirmed positive COVID-19 tests among individuals who have been on campus and may have exposed others.
This dashboard does not include tallies of positive cases among students taking online courses from home, or employees who are telecommuting and not coming to campus, as any such cases should not pose an on-campus health risk.
As previously announced, the College is now sharing information about students, faculty and staff who test positive for COVID-19 in the morning Daily Digest newsletter. These updates will be published whether or not there are new confirmed cases to report, and will continue Monday-Friday until further notice.
Members of the campus community may hear unconfirmed reports of individuals who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 but have not tested positive. The College will continue to report only confirmed, positive-test cases to the campus community.
We continue to recommend that members of our community who are experiencing flu-like symptoms practice good public health protocols by resting, drinking lots of fluids, reducing contact with others, restricting their movement, and contacting the Student Health Center or their primary care physician.
Campus leadership is continuing to monitor developments related to COVID-19 with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local and state health departments, as well as SUNY System Administration and the Governor’s Office.
Please continue to monitor campus e-mail for updates. Campus community members can view updates at the Coronavirus Information and Coronavirus FAQs webpages, which are being updated regularly as this situation evolves.
