Faculty & Staff
We are thrilled to be returning to a high level of on-campus instruction this Fall and look forward to the campus' return. Farmingdale State College has been remarkably successful in dealing with the ongoing public health crisis. Your cooperation will allow us to safely move to a much more normal and extensive campus experience.
The College urges everyone to take steps now to receive the COVID vaccine. It is free and will help ensure a safe return for the fall semester. Once you have uploaded your proof of vaccination, you will be exempt from completing the daily covid screening tool and weekly testing.
All employees who test positive are required to self-report using the self-reporting link.
The College will reimpose the indoor mask requirement in the event of any significant resurgence of COVID or changes in state, local, or federal requirements.
All employees with an on-campus presence who are not fully vaccinated are required to be tested weekly for possible COVID infection.
The Health and Wellness Center is offering free testing in the SBDC Conference Center near the Golf Driving Range:
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
- Friday 6:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
If you cannot make it to the on-campus pooled testing, you are required to obtain a test and submit the results via email to Human Resources. Please note that you are responsible for any cost incurred if you test off campus.
If you had a Positive COVID test within 90 days you will be excused from testing for 90 days from the date you had the positive COVID test performed. You will need to email the positive COVID test result to Human Resources.
Feeling Ill & COVID Positive
Employees are required to complete the self-reporting form.
Human Resources will contact the employee to determine if contact tracing is required.
Due to federal HIPPA laws, the identity of those who are diagnosed with COVID-19 cannot be disclosed and the College is limited in the amount of information it can make public in such situations.
