As previously shared

In partnership with New York State Gov. Kathy Hochul and in support of her recent initiative to open multiple test sites on SUNY campuses across New York state, SUNY Oswego will host a free, state-run community test site on campus, beginning Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022.

"We are getting creative in our approach to make testing easier for New Yorkers," Governor Hochul said. "With testing now available at SUNY campuses, we are expanding access across the state to make sure that we limit the spread of COVID-19. Get tested, wear a mask, and get your vaccine, second dose, and booster to keep yourself and your community safe as we get through this winter surge."

  • Binghamton University Community Testing Site

Knowing your COVID-19 status through testing and taking the necessary precautions when you are infected are key to keeping our kids in school and our communities functioning as we push through this winter surge."
