Health Office Services & COVID-19 Update:

SUNY CCC is closely monitoring local, state and federal guidance on COVID-19 and continues to work to maintain a safe campus. The Health Office at SUNY CCC remains open Monday-Thursday 8:00 am - 2:00 pm. We request that if you are ill with symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough, difficulty breathing, or fever that you do not come to campus. The Health Office recommends that you contact your primary care provider for further instruction. If you are on campus and develop symptoms it is requested that you call 607-962-9257 before coming to the health center. 


All students who are not fully vaccinated and come to campus must participate in weekly COVID testing, and everyone must wear a mask on campus.   If the student or employee has tested positive for COVID in the past 90 days, they will be excused from testing during that time.  All fully vaccinated students and staff must test every other week.  Please see the Pool Testing Schedule  for more information 

Pooled testing is available to all students and employees, but you may choose to obtain your own COVID test elsewhere. If you choose the second option please submit your weekly COVID test results by filling out the Covid Test Results Form


The Health Office will continue to monitor COVID cases on campus. Please notify healthoffice@corning-cc.edu if you test positive for COVID-19, or are required to quarantine for close contact with a COVID positive individual. All personal information will be kept confidential. 

The SUNY COVID Tracker has numbers of COVID-19 cases. Please note, not all cases listed for SUNY CCC involve campus exposure, as it is a list of the total number of students and employees testing positive, whether they have recently been on campus or not. If there is campus exposure, contact tracing is implemented by the local departments of health. It is very important that you fill out the COVID-19 screening form  each day before coming to campus.

Protect yourself from illness; wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol based sanitizer, maintain 6 feet from others and wear a face mask when you can not maintain distancing.

Telemedicine at SUNY CCC

Easy access with a laptop, tablet or phone.
