We believe an informed community is a safe community; therefore, we have created this COVID-19 dashboard for the fall 2020 semester. We must all recognize that COVID-19 is prevalent in our community and take necessary precautions. Although campuswide e-mails will not be issued after each positive test (campuswide notifications will be reserved for large clusters that may impact operations), this dashboard will updated daily.
Up-to-date information about on- and off-campus isolation*** and quarantine (precautionary and mandatory) statistics, as well as pooled surveillance testing updates, can be found on the SUNY COVID-19 Case Tracker.
We also encourage the campus community to remain informed about infection rates in Erie County and in New York State.
* “Total on-campus population” includes all students, faculty, and staff who are on the campus location, including those students living on campus and those attending class on campus, as well as all staff and faculty working on campus.
** Beginning with the 14-day measurement period of August 28, 2020, to September 11, 2020, whenever 100 members of the on-campus population – inclusive of students, faculty, and staff – test positive for COVID-19 within a set 14-day measurement period, New York State Department of Health’s guidance states that colleges and universities must immediately (1) transition all in-person learning to remote format(s), and (2) limit on-campus activities for at least 14 days.

For purposes of the New York State Department of Health’s mandatory requirement to temporarily suspend in-person learning as stated above, campuses should measure COVID-19 on-campus cases only during individual separate 14-day periods and not as a rolling average or total. These periods are listed below and are reflected in SUNY’s COVID-19 system-wide dashboard.
Period 1: Beginning August 28 — end of September 11
Period 2: September 12 to September 25
Period 3: September 26 to October 9
Period 4: October 10 to October 23
Period 5: October 24 to November 6
Period 6: November 7 to November 20
Period 7: November 21 to December 4
Period 8: December 5 to December 18
*** Isolation occurs when a person tests positive for COVID-19. Quarantine occurs when a symptomatic person or close contact of an infected person is awaiting testing or test results. Any resident student who tests positive for COVID-19 will be isolated in North Wing, which has been designated as an isolation residence hall. Commuter students, faculty, or staff members who test positive will isolate in their off-campus homes. The college partners with the Erie County Department of Health on contact tracing efforts, and any close contacts with positive individuals will be notified directly and asked to quarantine as appropriate.
