Testing for the SARS-CoV-2 Virus

For students, if you are symptomatic for COVID-19, please seek testing at Hammond Health Center during their regular business hours. 

Ithaca College no longer offers a designated testing center site on campus and no longer offers free testing kits for employees. Individuals should use local community resources such as pharmacies to procure their testing needs. 

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

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.
