Testing Overview

Cornell makes a variety of COVID-19 testing options available to all students, faculty and staff:

  • Supplemental testing is available on an as-needed basis to all asymptomatic individuals and is highly recommended following return from travel.
  • Antigen test kits are available to individuals who are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 at any of Cornell’s test sites. Cornell urges students, faculty and staff to use supplemental testing or antigen test kits before and after travel.
  • Symptomatic test kits are available for anyone experiencing mild to moderate symptoms suggestive of COVID-19.
