Ongoing surveillance

Surveillance program

Ongoing testing

Since June 1, 2021, weekly mandatory testing for fully vaccinated members of the campus community has not been required per updated SUNY guidance. However, asymptomatic members of the campus community may now be tested at the Surveillance Testing Center (STC) in Old Union Hall in the University Union. Appointments must be made one day prior to the testing, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tests are limited to one per week and appointments can be made at https://cglink.me/2eQ/r1153609.

Students who are symptomatic should contact the Decker Student Health Services Center (DSHSC) by phone to be considered for diagnostic testing.

The testing center is located in Old Union Hall and the hours are:

  • Monday: 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Friday: 6 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 will be contacted by staff and will be required to complete an isolation period as determined by the local health department (typically 10 days).

If you have a question about surveillance testing, your surveillance test results or issues around scheduling your surveillance test, email surveillance-testing@binghamton.edu. Do not email the Office of Emergency Management or Decker Student Health Services Center, as it will delay response.

Updated campus test results can be found on the SUNY COVID-19 Case Tracker site.
