COVID-19 Guidance for Employees

Employee Surveillance Pooled Testing

SUNY Geneseo is committed to the health and safety of our campus community. In a continued effort to monitor for the presence of SARS-COV-2 (COVID 19) in our campus population, we are continuing to conduct pooled testing. For more information about pooled testing please see the Frequently Asked Questions page. This will allow us to quickly identify and address potential outbreaks within our campus population.

All employees with an on-campus presence are required to test weekly throughout the spring semester starting the week of 2/8/2021. You will receive an email from a Human Resources staff member with testing dates, available times and instructions on how to sign up. If you have not received this email and you have an on-campus presence, please contact Heather Orme at Employees are required to complete the pooled testing process in accordance with agreements between SUNY and the unions. Surveillance testing will be held in Sturges Hall. You will enter through the main doors to check-in and then be directed to the appropriate room. The closest parking to Sturges is Lot B

Be sure to bring your user id and password that you created when you registered for your COVID-19 Surveillance account. On the day of testing, you will want to bring up your account on your smartphone or tablet and have it ready when you arrive. Here is the link:
