The NYS Department of Health has started providing text notifications* to individuals with positive test results. Additionally, notification to quarantine (as a result of being listed as a direct contact) may also come from the NYS Department of Health via text.
Please note that the information that triggers this text message being sent is NOT managed by SUNY Fredonia. Additionally, these results are NOT limited to pool testing results (e.g. may include positive results from a test you took at an urgent care, hospital, pharmacy, or with your primary care provider, etc.). It is quite likely you may receive the text before the campus is notified of any positive pool test results.
Also, Students and Employees may now log in at https://app.clarifi-covid-19. com/ (the same site used to register the barcode for the on-campus pool test each week) and click from the main screen to view pool test results:
If you receive a “Pooled Positive” result, please take extra precautions to protect others in the event that you are the individual who is positive. Wear your mask and maintain social distancing. Avoid gatherings wherever possible.
Beginning Monday March 29th, Upstate Medical will also be emailing pool testing results to individuals if they are in a positive pool.
If you receive a text, or any notification of positive results or expectation to quarantine, DURING Normal Business Hours (8am - 4:30pm M-F):
STUDENTS: contact email@example.com or 716-673-3131
EMPLOYEES: contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-673-3434
If you receive a text, or any notification of positive results or expectation to quarantine, AFTER Normal Business Hours:
See below for an example of the text from the NYS Department of Health.
NYS Department of Health is contacting _________(Your Name). Your COVID-19 test came back and you tested positive. You should immediately isolate yourself and contact your doctor. Your local health department will be contacting you to find out where you have been or who you came in contact with. Everything is kept confidential, and we will never ask for SSN or financial information.
You can help us speed up the contact tracing process by starting to think about who you came in contact with 48 hours before your symptoms began or 48 hours before you were tested, if you don't have symptoms. It's important we reach contacts quickly so they can quarantine themselves and get tested. Your name will never be disclosed to your contacts.
