Restriction of Services for Noncompliance with COVID Testing Policy

Students who miss their scheduled COVID-19 test and do not make up that test on the next available testing day are considered out of compliance and will have their access to certain campus services disabled until they have been tested.

Examples

  • If you miss your weekly scheduled test on Monday, you must complete your test on Tuesday to be compliant. If non-compliant, services will be disabled after 4 PM on Tuesday.
  • If you miss your weekly scheduled test on Tuesday, you must complete your test on Wednesday to be compliant. If non-compliant, services will be disabled after 4 PM. on Wednesday.
  • If you miss your weekly scheduled test on Wednesday, you must complete your test on Thursday to be compliant. If non-compliant, services will be disabled at 8 AM on Monday.
  • If you miss your weekly scheduled test on Thursday, you have to complete your test on Monday to be compliant. If non-compliant, services will be disabled after 4 PM on Monday.

Which services will be disabled? 

Disabled services include Canvas, Zoom, VPN, Apporto Virtual Lab, and University Tickets. Card access will also be deactivated for all buildings except your residence hall and dining. You will still have access to email.

Will I still be able to access my class materials and submit homework, complete labs, or take exams?

Except in rare circumstances, faculty will not accommodate students blocked from course materials due to non-compliance with the college’s COVID testing policy. So if you miss work or an exam, for example, you will not be able to complete the work at a later date.

How do I reschedule a test?

If you know in advance that you will not be able to make your scheduled test, email pooledtesting@geneseo.edu to reschedule.

If you miss a scheduled test, report to pooled testing the next available day (any time between 8 AM–4 PM) to complete the test. You do not need to email to reschedule. If you miss your scheduled test and do not report for testing the next available day, you will be identified as non-compliant.

Pooled testing takes place from 8 AM–4 PM every Monday-Thursday.

What if I'm sick or have an emergency that prevents me from reporting for my scheduled test?

There are some exceptions for students with unique circumstances. If you have questions, please email pooledtesting@geneseo.edu as soon as possible.

Will I be notified if I'm out of compliance?

Yes. You will receive an email notification.

After I get tested, when will my access be restored?

Access will be restored automatically through a process that runs twice per day—midday and after 6 PM. Depending on the timing of your test, you should have access restored the same day.
