The Hammond Health Center has home testing kits available for pick-up while supplies last. Students may stop by the health center during clinic hours. 

The Hammond Health Center will only perform PCR COVID-19 tests if students are seen by a provider with symptoms. 

What happens if I test positive for COVID-19 and live on campus?

There are changes to COVID-19 isolation and quarantine policies on campus starting for the Spring 2023 semester. 

Ithaca College will no longer have isolation dorms available and do not require students living on campus that test positive for COVID-19 to move into an isolation dorm. 

Students that test positive for COVID-19 will be responsible for self isolation whether living on or off campus. 

Students that test positive for COVID-19 should self isolate for 5 days from the first day of symptoms or the day of a positive test, whichever comes first. After 5 days of isolation the student should where a surgical mask for 5 more days

Ithaca College will no longer offer food delivery for students in self isolation.
