Expanded on-campus COVID-19 testing options for Aug. 23 – 27

The College is temporarily expanding on-campus COVID-19 testing from Monday, Aug. 23, to Friday, Aug. 27, to accommodate members of our community who need to test during the first week back on campus.

All New Paltz students, faculty and staff who have not provided vaccination documentation are required to get tested for COVID-19 every week they’re on campus this fall.

The College will offer two testing options – individual PCR testing with ENZO Labs, and pool testing facilitated by SUNY Upstate Medical University – from Aug. 23 – 27.

All testing – both options – will take place at Awosting Hall.
