The use of safe, effective vaccines against COVID-19 disease is the next phase of our shared responsibility for curbing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All Ithaca College students must be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 and Ithaca College faculty and staff are STRONGLY encouraged to be vaccinated. Vaccination minimizes the need for surveillance testing, but individuals symptomatic for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, should continue to seek advice from a medical professional to determine if COVID-19 testing is needed. 

Testing for the SARS-CoV-2 Virus

If you are symptomatic for COVID-19, please seek testing at Muller Faculty Center, suite 201, during the hours of 8:30am-5pm, Monday-Friday. 

If you have tested positive using an at-home testing kit, please call the Wrap Around Care office at 607-227-0402.

Testing Positive for the Sars-CoV-2 Virus

Information about students and employees testing positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus during the spring semester.


Employees are longer required to report positive COVID-19 test results to the college. Any employee who may become positive for COVID-19 should stay home and utilize NYS COVID-19 paid leave.

Residential Students

For the Spring 2023 semester, all residential students will self-isolate in their regular residence hall rooms who may have tested positive for COVID-19. The college will no longer be providing isolation specific housing in the event of a positive COVID-19 test. 

Off-Campus Students

Off-campus students must isolate in their own independent living arrangement or other arrangements.  Please refer to our Off-Campus Living Quarantine and Isolation webpage for information on how to prepare your household to manage isolation should it need to occur.


If you are a student with questions about vaccination or symptoms related to COVID-19, please email ICHealth@cayugamed.org or call 607-274-3177.
