Albany – State University of New York Chancellor Jim Malatras today announced that all SUNY colleges and universities will implement a testing program to detect COVID-19 cases on campuses. The recently approved surveillance testing advancements at Upstate Medical University, as well as the University at Albany, makes 100 percent testing capacity possible for every student on campus every two weeks. This new requirement will ensure that SUNY students, faculty, and staff on campus are tested regularly, which helps college and university leadership and their local public health officials identify, trace, and contain the virus quickly.
