Fall 2021 Guidance/COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Dashboard

As part of SUNY Cortland’s effort to safely reopen and operate during the pandemic, university health officials provide case counts, testing statistics and other COVID-19 information to New York state daily. Members of the SUNY Cortland community can access that information at the SUNY COVID Tracker.


The tracker provides updated statistics for SUNY Cortland and all other SUNY campuses. Through it, the public can track the prevalence of the virus at the university and how close it is to the state-set threshold that mandates a two-week study-in-place period.

That threshold is currently when 5% of all on-campus COVID-19 tests over a rolling, 14-day period are positive.

To view that metric for SUNY Cortland on the SUNY COVID Tracker, go to the Cortland-specific page of data using then look in the middle of the page for the information under “Rolling 14 Days.” The number under the “% Positive” heading is what you compare to 5%.

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.
