Testing Periods

Student Health Services completes randomized testing of asymptomatic individuals (those not reporting symptoms) on Monday and Thursday afternoons, therefore the data in this dashboard is also updated twice weekly, on Tuesday and Friday mornings and will report the data for the most recent 7 days (which includes two test periods), and the cumulative data since we began testing on campus on August 28, 2020.

Student health services also tests symptomatic students (those with identified symptoms via our symptom checker) as results are received, and data for those tests will also be aggregated into our Tuesday and Friday reporting to protect the privacy of those tested.  

Testing Data

Students in quarantine: 13

Quarantined students are those who are remaining in their residence hall rooms because they were exposed to someone who tested positive. they will remain in quarantine for 14 days, or 10 days if they have a negative test on day 10. If they develop symptoms, they will be tested; with a positive test, they will moved out of their residence hall to a separate room to remove them from the campus community for 10 days while they recover.

Students in isolation: 13

Students in isolation have tested positive and will remain out of their residence hall in a separate isolation space or return home for 10 days while they recover.

Employees in quarantine or isolation: not reported

Per CDC guidelines, employees who test positive need to isolate at home for 10 days, or quarantine for 14 days if they are identified as a positive contact.  The employee's supervisor will make sure this is enforced.


Cornell faculty, staff and students are voluntarily reporting when they receive vaccinations from off-campus providers, and we will be updating this data twice weekly, on Tuesday and Friday mornings.

Faculty and staff reported as fully vaccinated: 148
Faculty and staff % fully vaccinated: 39.9%

Student reported as fully vaccinated: 54
Student body % fully vaccinated: 5.7%

The percentage of students is calculated using the official count of students as of fall census day, it does not reflect how many students are in residence on campus.
