Surveillance Testing

Students that have not completed the primary COVID-19 vaccination series or are in the 30-day grace period (primary vaccination series is in progress) are required to test weekly.

SUNY Brockport will not be offering in-person weekly testing. Required surveillance testing will be completed via a provided at-home testing kit. 

Students

It is required that all unvaccinated students complete a weekly at-home test and provide documentation each week. Check your Brockport email for instructions on testing supply pick-up.

  • Students must provide an image of completed test results each week to Student Submitting Own Results by 3 pm on Friday each week.
  • You MUST follow the correct format (see below) to be approved. Please include:
    • your name
    • date of test
    • time of test
    • a photo ID
    • 800#

how to take a Photo of Your Test Results

    1. Date of test
    2. Date of birth
    3. Your Initials 
  3. Take a photo that clearly shows both the COVID test and your Brockport ID in the frame. 
  • If extenuating circumstances prevent you from being tested in a particular week, you may apply for a One-Time Exemption Request.

  • Students who test positive should upload their positive test result to their MyHazen portal for review by Hazen Health Center, isolate and await further instructions and guidance.

Faculty & Staff

SUNY Brockport is no longer conducting surveillance testing as of the Fall 2022 semester. Faculty and staff should still report their most current vaccination and booster information to Human Resources in the event testing is reinstituted.

  • Visit the Department of Human Resources (Allen Administration Building, 4th floor) or email hrcovid@brockport.edu to show proof of your vaccination and/or booster. This can take place Monday through Friday, 8 am - 4 pm. Faculty and staff should contact hrcovid@brockport.edu with any questions or concerns.

Symptomatic Testing

  • Individuals with COVID symptoms should test at the onset of symptoms.
  • Masking is recommended to prevent possible spread of infection.
  • Individuals who have tested positive in the last 90-days are exempt from testing.

Students

  • Symptomatic students can contact the Hazen Health Center: 585-395-2414
  • Students who test positive should upload their positive test result to their MyHazen portal for review by Hazen Health Center, isolate and await further instructions and guidance.

Faculty/Staff

  • Faculty/Staff in need of symptomatic testing may contact hrcovidtesting@brockport.edu. Tests will be available as supplies permit.
  • Employees that test positive for COVID-19 should isolate at home or leave campus. Do not report to campus. Notify your supervisor, contact hrcovidtesting@brockport.edu with a message from your health care provider and/or picture of the positive test result and await further instructions and guidance. Note: the email is monitored periodically Monday through Friday during the hours of 8 am - 4 pm.

Contacts of a Positive

A close contact is defined as being within six feet of an individual for more than 15 minutes. If you have been in close contact of an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, here is a reminder of our protocols: 

  • Individuals who do not exhibit any respiratory symptoms are NOT required to quarantine. They should test for COVID-19 five to seven days after exposure and are required to mask for 10 days. 
  • Individuals who are experiencing symptoms must be tested as soon as possible.  
  • Employees seeking a test following close contact with a positive COVID-19 individual should contact hrcovidtesting@brockport.edu. Tests will be available as supplies last.
  • Employees that have exhausted their non-chargeable leave will be required to use accruals or work remotely if approved to do so by their supervisor.
  • Hazen Health Center may mandate individuals in some cohorts to contact test as necessary to reduce potential transmission. 
  • NOTE: Due to a change in local health department guidance, the COVID testing center is no longer offering PCR tests. Asymptomatic contacts of a positive will receive a rapid antigen test.

Outside Quarantine Orders (Students) 

If you have received quarantine orders from an outside source (Department of Health, your physician, etc.) they can be uploaded here. Students should contact pooltesting@brockport.edu with any questions or concerns.
