Update on Sadler Hall COVID-19 Testing: All Results Negative
Dear Students, Faculty, Staff and Families:
On Friday, the University’s public health team notified residents and staff of Sadler Hall that wastewater testing of that facility detected a very weak signal of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Given the very weak signal, it was determined that the most appropriate response was to proceed with comprehensive COVID-19 testing of Sadler Hall residents and staff. That testing took place on Friday afternoon.
I am writing today to share that the results of Friday’s testing indicate no evidence of any new, active positive cases of COVID-19 among Sadler Hall residents and staff.
I want to thank the residents and staff of Sadler Hall for taking the time to visit the Quad on Friday to be tested. You responded with a positive attitude and a strong sense of accountability for the collective well-being of our campus. Thank you!
We will continue to sample wastewater in Sadler Hall and facilities across campus and respond to what we learn with swift action appropriate to safeguard the health of our campus and the Central New York community.
Again, I want to extend my thanks to everyone in our campus community for their ongoing cooperation in ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, neighbors and visitors.

Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation
