UAlbany expects that anyone who is feeling unwell will stay home, follow public health guidance and seek medical care as needed. Find a community-based testing site.
If you need to speak to a medical provider, make a Student Health Services appointment. Note: Masks are required inside Student Health Services for sick visits.
Students are no longer required to report positive COVID-19 test results to the University. However, if you have a meal plan and need to pick up to-go meals from the State or Indigenous Quad dining halls, please submit the Sick Meal Letter Request Form to obtain an authorization letter.
Therefore, students should not attend in-person classes while in isolation following a positive COVID test. Please communicate directly with your instructors regarding absences.
You may isolate at your permanent residence, at an off-campus location with family or friends, or in your on-campus housing assignment.
Consult your medical provider (such as your primary care physician or Student Health Services) if your symptoms change or worsen.
If you need to document your isolation, please use the New York State Department of Health’s Affirmation of Isolation form.
