The dashboard below provides an update on Elmira College's positive COVID-19 tests, if any, broken out by constituency. All numbers reflect testing administered by a healthcare provider and/or Elmira College for students and employees currently living or working on campus. The dashboard is updated daily.

**Please note: the numbers reported on this dashboard are not identical to the information reported on the New York State dashboard. Be sure to read the definitions provided on each site.**

Those that have tested positive will either isolate in a designated location on campus or at an off-campus location with medical guidance provided by the Clarke Health Center and/or their personal health care professional until they recover.

The Chemung County Health Department is providing contact tracing and anyone who has come into close contact with the infected persons have been or will be notified and advised on the appropriate health and safety protocols. Notifications will be made to College members of possible exposures if the person testing positive was on campus while infectious. All contacts deemed at risk of exposure will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
