After baseline testing is concluded, all students and employees coming to campus for any reason must be tested at least once each week through campus surveillance (saliva) testing.

Free surveillance testing is available for students and employees who are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (asymptomatic), have not tested positive, and are not in quarantine or isolation.
COVID-19 symptoms include: a temperature >100.4 degrees, fever, chills, cough, difficulty breathing, headache, sore throat, muscle/joint aches, diarrhea, abdominal cramps or nausea, conjunctivitis (pink eye), or loss of taste or smell.
SUNY Oswego is currently performing wastewater testing to identify levels of the virus in main campus buildings, specifically (11) of our residence halls throughout the spring 2021 semester.
The goal is to monitor intensity and to produce a gross indicator of campus health. If a test result is a concern, additional tests further up the sanitary line will be performed for specific parts of the campus. SUNY Oswego will then concentrate health resources and behavioral interventions on areas of concern. Our wastewater testing partner is Quadrant Biosciences in Syracuse.
The goal of contact tracing is to identify, through a series of interviews, individuals who have had significant close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19.
