September 24 message from President Kolison to campus: "The information on the SUNY dashboard has been expanded and is now repetitive of the local dashboard that had been on Fredonia's webpage since the start of the semester. To eliminate any confusion over which dashboard is the authoritative source for information, we (have removed) our local dashboard and embedded the SUNY dashboard. Notwithstanding, we will continue to collect all the information we need internally to guide local decision-making."

If you have symptoms
If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste/smell, chills, body aches, etc.), stay at your residence hall or off-campus location and call the Student Health Center at 716-673-3131 to enable one of our medical professionals to give you the best advice on how to proceed.
The Student Health Center is currently working in coordination with Brooks Memorial Hospital to provide PCR* testing for COVID-19 for students who present with symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Here is the process:
- A student who is seen by the Student Health Center staff with COVID-19 like symptoms will have the PCR test (nasal swab) performed while in the Student Health Center. This test will be charged to the student's private health insurance.
- This test will then be sent by courier to Brooks Memorial Hospital accompanied by a medical order from one of the health care providers in the Student Health Center and a copy of the students private health insurance.
- While awaiting results, the student may be asked to self-quarantine in order to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. The Student Health Center will help with this process to get the student settled and ensure all needs are being met.
- Once the results are known, the student will be contacted directly by the Student Health Center.
*PCR = Polymerase Chain Reaction test used to diagnose people who are currently sick with COVID-19
SUNY Fredonia has reserved a residence hall for on-campus (residential) students for quarantine and isolation. For students living off-campus in Chautauqua County, the Chautauqua County Health Department will provide for the needs of students (who the Health Department orders into isolation or quarantine) who cannot isolate or quarantine at their residence.
For students living outside of Chautauqua County and/or engaged in distance learning only, please work with your local Health Department and contact the Student Health Center (716-673-3131 or firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can check-in and offer support, as needed.
