2/5: All employees who come to campus regularly expected to be tested every week

Beginning Feb. 1, all employees who come to campus on a regular basis are expected to be tested every week (SUNY policy). 

The following employees should expect to receive an invitation to register with SUNY for weekly testing:

  • Employees who have attested several times through the Daily Health Check over the past two weeks that they are coming to campus.
  • Instructors teaching a scheduled, on-campus class with room, day(s) and time(s). Roswell Park and other off-campus classes excluded.
  • Employees identified by FSA as working on campus.
  • Employees with a paid, primary appointment in the following units/departments:
    • UPD.
    • Campus Living (VPSL Campus Living, Campus Living Director's Office, Campus Living Facilities, Campus Living Custodial, Campus Living Maintenance, Campus Living Housing Services, Campus Living Central Services, Campus Living Res Life).
    • Facilities (Campus Operations, Design & Construction, Environment, Health and Safety).

Employees with a positive case in the past 90 days have been removed from the list for surveillance testing.

If your schedule has changed and you are working remotely, you are not expected to come in for testing

All UB students who come to campus are expected to be tested weekly, so there will be more activity at all sites. Students are required to make a reservation for a time and location which should cut down on longer lines. Faculty and staff can get tested any time the sites are operating.
