With broad availability of antigen tests – which are effective at detecting infection at high viral levels, when people are most infectious – Cornell Tech no longer provides weekly PCR (nasal/saliva) testing. Antigen tests will continue to be available at the Bloomberg Center security desk to all students, faculty and staff who may wish to test following travel, attendance at large gatherings, illness or potential exposure.

Cornell Tech will continue to work closely with our university colleagues and local public health officials to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will make future testing policy changes as necessary to help keep our campus community safe.


Historical weekly testing information:

Weekly testing is normally done through anterior nares sampling, a simple, non-invasive nasal swab. Collected samples will be sent to the Cornell COVID-19 Testing Laboratory for processing.
