COVID-19 Reporting and Testing Update


Members of the University community who have received a positive COVID-19 test, or suspect they have COVID-19, should report their status as follows:

  • 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. University Contact Tracing: (914) 367-3001 or (914) 367-3190;
  • 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. Public Safety Desk: (718) 817-2222.

Callers should be ready to provide their full name and cell phone number.

Deans and vice presidents will be notified of positive cases in their areas (they will not receive the identities of the infected individuals) and may share that information with affected departments. This is in addition to the frequently updated University dashboard.

All fully vaccinated students, faculty, and staff who are asymptomatic and identified as possibly having been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual through University Contact Tracing should report for testing as outlined below within 3 to 5 days. These individuals must remain masked at all times while on campus, indoors and outside, must monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days, and cannot remove masks (including outdoors) until in receipt of a negative COVID-19 test. This testing is provided at no charge to anyone believed to be exposed on campus.
