Health & Wellness COVID-19 Information

Health and Wellness COVID-19 Partnerships

In partnership, Alfred State College, Alfred University, and the Allegany County Department of Health have created protocols reflecting CDC and New York State guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19. 

Alfred State’s Health and Wellness Services is open and available to provide counseling and medical services during hours of operation, both in person and via telehealth services. 

Due to the quantity of students that will be arriving to campus, we will not be testing everyone prior to their re-entry onto campus. Testing every member of our community could also create a false sense of security. The CDC does not recommend widespread, asymptomatic testing, and instead recommends that all individuals take preventative measures to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is consistent with the advice of our own Department of Health and college health experts. 

However, before leaving your residence hall room or your home for classes each day, all individuals should complete their daily screening each morning, checking for symptoms. 

Anyone who is experiencing any symptom(s) indicated on the screening must not go to class or work and will be contacted by Health and Wellness Services by the end of the day. 

If you are experiencing any symptoms or have any concerns related to COVID-19 please call 607-587-2619 between the hours of 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. If you call after business hours please leave a message and your call will be returned the following business day.

For all emergencies related to COVID-19 please contact University Police at 607-587-3999.
