Reactivating Campus

Daily Check

Daily Check

Cornell University requires those approved to return to the Ithaca campus or related facilities to complete the Daily Check prior to their arrival each day.

Check in

The State of New York has issued guidance that mandates daily health screenings. In an effort to comply with this mandate, the university developed Daily Check, an easy-to-use online tool that allows faculty, staff and students approved to return to Cornell's main campus or related facilities to confirm that they are symptom-free and have not had recent exposure to someone with COVID-19.

All students, whether living on campus or in the greater Ithaca area, must complete the Daily Check every day, including weekends. Faculty and staff approved to research or work on the Ithaca campus must complete the Daily Check before arriving to campus or accessing campus facilities. If you have questions about whether you have been cleared to work on campus, please contact your department chair, supervisor or human resources representative.
