CUNY will begin following CDC’s recently issued guidance that adjusted the recommended quarantine and isolation times for people in close contact with someone who is positive or those who test positive: CUNY employees and students who come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 should base their approach to quarantine – if it is needed, when to end it, and when to test – depending on whether they are boosted, fully vaccinated and when, or unvaccinated. Please follow CDC’s guidance on quarantine detailed here. Employees and students who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for at least 5 days. When to end isolation, test and return to in-person work or class varies depending on whether or not a person develops symptoms or is severely ill. Please follow CDC’s guidance on isolation detailed here. For a detailed description on CDC’s guidelines on quarantine and isolation visit here. Employees who are able to work remotely during quarantine and isolation should do so.
To help contain the spread of COVID-19 in our community, the testing program includes periodic screening of a random sampling. If you are selected for random testing, once you submit your test, no further action is required. Your test result will typically be available within 48 hours and will be automatically sent to you via email/text. CUNY also offers free PCR testing at CUNY sites for any CUNY student or employee who needs to be tested for any reason. CUNY testing sites are staffed with professionals who facilitate check-in and provide instructions. All random testing must be done at a CUNY Testing site. Results from any other facility are not accepted and cannot be uploaded.
