COVID-19 Dashboard

This page is designed to track COVID-19 cases on campus. Any member of the Cortland community (student or employee) who tests positive for COVID-19 will be isolated in accordance with the SUNY Cortland Restart Plan. Contact tracers will identify and notify individual(s) who may have had close contact with an infected individual and will be provided information on steps to take to quarantine for 14 days.

This page is intended to provide guidance to help the college community. All active case counts are classified generally to the best of SUNY Cortland's knowledge.

Confirmed Positive Cases refers to reliable confirmation of a positive test for COVID-19. The SUNY Cortland campus utilizes information received from self-reports, notifications from Cortland County Health Department (CCHD) Student Health Services, Academic Affairs, or other health agencies to compile campus case counts.

Note: The SUNY Cortland dashboard will include all SUNY Cortland students, including those staying in Cortland both on-campus and off-campus, and those who go home to isolate or quarantine.  The Cortland County Health Department monitors SUNY Cortland students who complete their isolation and quarantine in Cortland County.  SUNY Cortland students who test positive but go home to complete their isolation, and students who were named as a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case but go home to complete their quarantine, will not be counted in the Cortland County dashboard, as their home county will complete the monitoring.  SUNY Cortland's dashboard will look different than the Cortland County dashboard for this reason.
