COVID Test Before Going Home


Contributed by Christina Moylan

As we head toward the Thanksgiving holiday, our country is experiencing a significant increase in COVID-19 cases. If you are departing the Ithaca area at Thanksgiving for the remainder of the semester, we ask that you receive exit testing prior to leaving to protect the health of your family and friends.

Exit testing will occur on Monday, November 23 from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and Tuesday, November 24 from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm at the A&E Center. Please note there is a 1-hour break for lunch from approximately noon to 1:00 pm. Please register as soon as possible so you can ensure a time slot that works for your schedule.

Please register for an appointment to test. Click HERE to register for an appointment.

Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to your appointment, and no earlier. Also, please do not arrive late. Please have your appointment confirmation either printed or available on your phone. Testing will take approximately 30 minutes.

Results can take up to 48 hours to be available.
