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.

Reporting of COVID-19 cases is mandated by NYS Public Health Law. Laboratories and healthcare providers notify local health departments of all positive tests for COVID-19 and only known confirmed positive cases are included in the campus dashboard. The SUNY Cortland campus utilizes information received from the Cortland County Health Department (CCHD), individual notifications with documentation, Student Health Services, surveillance and pool testing information, Academic Affairs, Human Resources, and other health agencies to compile confirmed campus case counts.

Note: The SUNY Cortland dashboard will include cases for all SUNY Cortland students who may come to campus for classes or use campus facilities or who may interact with other campus community members.  This includes those staying in Cortland both on-campus and off-campus to isolate or quarantine, 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.
