Testing for Spring 2022 Return to Campus
All students and employees, regardless of vaccination status, are required to submit a negative PCR test to the Health Services portal no more than 72 hours prior to arriving on campus for the spring semester.
Note: Given the recent challenges in acquiring tests and the delays in processing results, you may submit a negative rapid (antigen) test taken on the day of your return to campus to the portal while waiting for your PCR test results. Upload a photo with your name and test date to the portal showing a negative rapid test as a placeholder. A rapid test may be taken at home or at a facility. Upload your negative PCR test results to the portal as soon as you receive them.

Mandatory Testing for Unvaccinated Employees and Students With Exemptions
Those who have not provided FIT Health Services with proof of vaccination are required to comply with weekly COVID-19 testing. A weekly negative COVID-19 PCR test result is necessary in order to work.
COVID-19 testing is provided on campus in the John E. Reeves Great Hall. Appointments are available Mondays–Thursdays, 9 am–6 pm, and Fridays, 9 am–5 pm, and can be made online via the Health Services portal or by calling (212) 217-4190. Walk-ins will be accommodated if slots are available although appointments are preferred.
Testing should be done outside of work/class hours. If you obtain a test off campus, note that depending on where the test is obtained, there may be a fee or copay that will need to be submitted to insurance for reimbursement, if available.

Weekly Random Testing
According to SUNY requirements, FIT is conducting weekly random testing of 100 members of the FIT community (employees and students) for the remainder of the semester. Whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, individuals will be notified randomly by FIT Health Services. Testing continues to take place in the John E. Reeves Great Hall.
On-campus testing is available. Weekly testing is mandated for all students and employees who are not fully vaccinated and those who think they have COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19. Testing is also available for individuals who request it.
Location: John E. Reeves Great Hall
Hours: Mondays–Thursdays, 9 am–6 pm; Fridays, 9 am–5 pm
Appointments can be made online via the Health Services portal or by calling (212) 217-4190.
Walk-ins will be accommodated if slots are available, but appointments are preferred.
Failure to Test
Employees: If weekly test results are not provided, unvaccinated individuals will not be permitted access to campus and will not be permitted to work remotely (unless granted an accommodation under the ADA). You would need to charge paid time off leave banks if you are not permitted access to campus. The requirement of weekly testing for unvaccinated employees is a SUNY-wide mandate with which we must demonstrate compliance.
