Pre-arrival testing/quarantine

There are 5 action steps to complete prior to classes beginning on February 3 to ensure a safe start to the semester.  These steps require you to do some planning ahead based on your anticipated arrival to campus or the community.  Even fully remote students must complete some steps.  Please be aware of what you need to complete: 

  • Residential students (living on campus)
    • Daily Health Screenings
    • A COVID Test
    • 2021 Spring Return Form
    • 7-Day Precautionary Quarantine
    • Verification/Local Address Update
  • Off-campus students (taking at least one class or utilizing facilities on campus)
    • Daily Health Screenings
    • A COVID Test
    • 2021 Spring Return Form
    • 7-Day Precautionary Quarantine
    • Verification/Local Address Update
  • Fully remote/online students
    • 2021 Spring Return Form
    • Verification/Local Address Update

HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR REQUIREMENTS

Daily Health Screening

The Daily Health Screenings restarted on 1/11 via your Fredonia email.  All students are expected to complete the daily health screening beginning at least two weeks prior to your return to campus. 

*As a reminder, if at any time during the semester you test positive for COVID-19, or are quarantined by the Health Department, notify the Student Health Center (health.center@fredonia.edu or 716-673-3131) immediately. The Student Health Center will assist you in monitoring your symptoms and can provide documentation to ESS to address in-person class absences exceeding three days. 

Taking a COVID Test

Any student who will be coming to campus for the spring semester for any reason (meals, meetings, classes, etc.) is required to provide documentation confirming a negative test for COVID-19 taken within three days prior to return but no later than five days of returning to campus (or medical documentation of a positive test within the last 90 days).  For example, if you are planning to move into your Residence Hall on January 30, you would take a test January 27.  The following dates are based on taking a COVID test prior to campus arrival, this is the safest option for our campus community and strongly recommended.  

  • Students living on campus
    • Complete and submit a COVID-19 negative test by Wednesday, January 27
    • Move-in dates Saturday, January 30 - Tuesday, February 2
  • Students living off campus
    • Complete and submit a COVID-19 negative test by Saturday, January 30
    • Move-in date: N/A (test deadline is based on first day of classes Feb. 3)
  • Out-of-state students living on campus
    • Complete and submit a COVID-19 negative test by Sunday, January 24
    • Move-in dates: Wednesday, January 27 - Thursday, January 28
  • RAs/Student Teachers living on campus
    • Complete and submit a COVID-19 negative test by Wednesday, January 20
    • Move-in dates: Saturday, January 23 - Sunday, January 24

You can obtain a test in one of three ways below.  Fredonia will host a Re-Entry Testing Clinic January 29-February 2, as an alternative option for those struggling to obtain a test.

To reduce the risk of virus transmission, it is strongly recommended that you take a COVID-19 test prior to your return. 

Uploading COVID Test Results

If you complete a COVID test PRIOR to coming to campus, you will upload your results in the Spring 2021 Return to Campus form between January 25-February 3.  You will be able to upload an image or pdf file of your results as provided to you from the testing site or testing platform you used into the form.   If you are returning to campus before you receive your results, you will need to submit the Spring 2021 Return to Campus Form and register for a Re-Entry Test date.  Should your results arrive prior to the re-entry date, you may return to the form and upload your results.

7-day Precautionary Quarantine

To reduce the risk of virus transmission and in accordance with SUNY guidelines, a precautionary seven-day quarantine (prior to your return) is expected for all Fredonia students who will come to campus in spring 2021.  Here is a timeline of when you should begin to quarantine.  You will be asked to attest to completing or planning on completing your quarantine on the Spring 2021 Return to Campus Form.

Note:  Commuter students who are employed may apply to the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Services (ess@fredonia.edu) for a limited exemption to allow them to work during the quarantine. To qualify for the exemption, such students will need to document the COVID-19 safety protocols of their employers. Also, the exemption will only apply to their ability to work. When not working, the students will be expected to quarantine from others. 

 

Begin 7-day precautionary quarantine on or before
Students living on campus Saturday, January 23
Students living off campus

Wednesday, January 27 

(*if taking Re-Entry test on campus, start January 22) 

Out-of-state students living on campus Wednesday, January 20
RAs/Student teachers living on campus Saturday, January 16

*For students traveling to New York State from a noncontiguous state, U.S. territory, or CDC level 2 or level 3 country, please note that the New York State COVID-19 Travel Advisory remains in place. Residential students will need to contact Residence.Life@fredonia.edu to arrange to complete your precautionary quarantine.

Submit Spring 2021 Returning to Campus Form

All students will receive an email with a link to Spring 2021 Returning to Campus form to complete pre-arrival questions starting January 25. All students must complete this form. In order to complete the form you will need to:

  • Know If you will be on campus for any reason in spring 2021 (classes, food/meals, work, using the library or other services, etc)
  • Decide how you will be completing a COVID test (on your own prior to arrival or using the Re-Entry Testing Clinic)
  • Provide evidence of a negative COVID Test result to upload, if taking a test prior to arrival or date you want to register for the Re-Entry Testing Clinic (1/29, 2/1, or 2/2)
  • Attest to having completed (or will complete) a seven-day precautionary quarantine prior to returning to campus

When to complete the Spring 2021 Returning to Campus Form

You should not complete this form until you have the appropriate negative test result documentation, medical documentation of a positive test within the last 90 days, OR if you need to register to participate in an on campus Re-Entry Test.  Please keep in mind you may have to adjust your arrival to campus based on those results or choosing to participate in a Re-Entry Test.  Every student with plans to be on campus this semester in some way, should have the form completed between January 25- February 2.  Fully remote/online students should complete it by January 27.

All students will be pre-screened daily for travel history, COVID-19 history and COVID-19 symptoms for two weeks prior to return. Daily screenings will continue throughout the semester.

Fredonia students will begin receiving texts two weeks prior to coming to campus asking them to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms.

Upon returning for Spring 2021 on-campus activities, any student who lives on campus, takes at least one class on campus, utilizes services on campus (e.g., library, fitness center, dining), or works on campus, must:

  • submit an attestation that he/she/they have completed a 7-day precautionary quarantine prior to returning to campus; and either:
    • present evidence of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days prior to return, or;
    • participate in on-campus COVID-19 testing as soon as possible but no later than five days of returning to campus, or;
    • present documentation of a positive diagnostic result for COVID-19 from the prior 3-month period.
  • inform the campus of any known contacts with COVID-19 positive individuals, or of any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or of a positive test result for COVID-19 (this notification to campus should not replace reporting to a health care provider or local health department).

Students who return to campus from a noncontiguous state or a CDC level 2 or level 3 country will be required to complete a NYS travel advisory form and complete the required quarantine (with ability to test out on day 4).

Re-entry testing

Students must submit a negative test OR sign-up to participate in re-entry testing on:

  • Friday, January 29th:  9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm
  • Monday, February 1st:  9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm
  • Tuesday, February 2nd:  9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm
Information will be sent directly to students regarding re-entry testing.

Failure to comply

For any student who lives on campus, takes at least one class on campus, utilizes services on campus, or works on campus, if you:

  • fail to submit evidence of the negative test (or positive diagnostic results from prior 3 month period) or, 
  • fail to participate in Re-Entry Testing on 1/29, 2/1 or 2/2, and/or
  • fail to attest to having completed the 7-day precautionary quarantine prior to returning to campus... 

Your e-services will be turned off beginning February 3, 2021 until this step is completed.

Complete Semester Verification and Update Local Address in Your Connection

Log into the Your Connection portal and see the Enrollment Verification Survey starting 1/25.  It is your responsibility to review the Code of Conduct, update any local address changes for the semester, and indicate if you are enrolled for the semester before February 5 to complete this item.

Move-in

Check in for the residence halls/townhouses will begin on January 30 and will continue until February 2, 2021. Unlike the fall 2020 check-in process, this spring you will go directly to the residence hall you have been assigned to and complete your check-in and receive your residence hall room key in the lobby of each hall.  
 
Residence Hall Student Check-In
 
  • January 30 - All Halls Open
    9AM-9PM:  Alpha - A-M
  • January 31 - All Halls Open
    9AM-9PM: Alpha - N-Z

Out-of-state students and international students requesting to stay on campus during the required NYS Precautionary Quarantine period will be allowed to return to campus as early as January 27th to complete quarantine. More information will be sent to your campus email about that process in early January.
 
Each residence hall student will be permitted 1 move-in helper. Alternating move-in helpers is discouraged, since we are trying to minimize the risk of virus spread in the residence halls.

Move-in helpers (e.g., parent, friend, family member, etc.) are not required to submit negative COVID-19 test results to the campus in advance.  However, move-in helpers will be medically screened at the residence hall; the screening will include a temperature check and questions about COVID-19 symptoms.

Spring 2021 housing assignments were released on Tuesday, January 12. They are available in the MyHousing portal on YourConnection. If you were expecting a housing assignment and no housing assignment is listed for you yet, email Residence Life.

FREDCards

New students can pick up their FREDCard ID at the FSA Office in Gregory Hall starting January 30-31 from 11 AM-3PM and February 1-3 from 8AM-4:30PM.  New residence hall students will want to arrive on campus at a time in which they can pick up their FREDCard for access into their residence hall.  Please be aware all students must show government issued photo identification (driver’s license, permit, passport) or a copy of a birth certificate and photo ID from previous school to show proof of who they are at the time of pick-up.

Living on campus

Due to the availability of residence hall pool testing we are loosening up visitation restrictions in each residence hall. Our hope is that you find that these changes allow for ease of socialization while maintaining the health and safety that is necessary.
 
Same-Hall Visitation:
  • We will allow same-hall visitation
  • Each resident will be allowed to have one guest (from same-hall) in their bedroom at any given time
  • Each roommate must sign an agreement indicating that they agree with allowing guests (from same-hall) in their bedroom
  • Suite rooms can have a max of 8 students at any one time (from same-hall). All students will be masked.

Masks will need to be worn by residence hall students  anytime they are outside of their bedroom.

This information is preliminary residence hall  information so you can begin to make your travel plans back to Fredonia for the Spring semester. More specific information will be sent to your Fredonia email about the campus requirements for return, such as submitting test results from a negative co-vid test and attesting to the health screening and other important safety requirements. Please continue to check your Fredonia email over the rest of the fall remote learning weeks as well as over the winter recess.

Dining on campus

Faculty Student Association (FSA), which oversees dining facilities on the Fredonia campus, has made adjustments to dining operations in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, and the New York State and Chautauqua County Department of Health to insure the safety of customers and staff.

Various dining and service locations will be open on campus starting January 25- February 2.  Spring 2021 Meal Plans officially begin on Saturday, January 30. Seating capacity at all dining locations on campus will be at 50%. Spring 2021 campus dining options offered by the FSA include:

  • Cranston Marche, an "all you care to eat" dining hall;
  • Willy C's, a grab and go food court;
  • Mason Hall Cafe;
  • Starbucks;
  • Tim Hortons;
  • Convenience Store. 

The Marche, Willy C's, Starbucks and Tim Hortons offer to-go and dine-in with tables appropriately distanced and capacity reduced. Mason Cafe and the Convenience Store are grab and go locations. 

Customers of dining services will be asked to enter through one entrance, and exit out the other; the doors will be marked appropriately. All social distancing guidelines will need to be adhered to. There will be dots on the floor appropriately spaced to help with social distancing. An FSA staff member will be at the door to monitor occupancy. Because of the occupancy limitations, take-out will be available and encouraged. All customers will be required to wear facial coverings until seated.

Hours of operation available on the FSA website.

Academics

Approximately 72% of the courses in Fredonia’s Spring 2021 course schedule have some face-to-face component (i.e., fully face-to-face, hybrid, or A/B), and 28% of courses are remote or online. For information on the teaching modality of specific courses, students can search individual courses on YourConnection

More information:

  • Density in classrooms will be reduced by limiting essentially all classrooms to 50 or fewer in-person students, fully utilizing all instructional slots from throughout the day, and assigning classes to classrooms normally utilized for larger classes.
  • Classroom spaces across campus have been "taped" to clarify physical distancing and "instructor zones."
  • Classes will be separated by 20 minutes rather than the usual 10 minutes to decrease congestion in hallways, accommodate teaching and room assignments, and give faculty time to set up classroom technology.

Surveillance testing information

Students and employees who come to campus are required to report to surveillance pool testing in Steele Hall once every two weeks during the Spring 2021 semester. The semester schedule for pool testing will be sent via email to students and employees at the start of the semester. Reminders will be sent to individuals via email approximately two days before their scheduled testing date. Individuals who are unable to attend on their scheduled date may request an alternative date by contacting the Pool Testing Office at pooltesting@fredonia.edu or (716) 680-6073.

Individuals exempt from pool testing include those who:

  • Have received a previous positive COVID-19 diagnostic result in the last 90 days

Antigen tests

The Student Health Center has been approved to charge $35 for the COVID antigen test for the purpose of the following:

  • For those students who wish to test out of precautionary quarantine on Day #4
  • For those students who need documentation of a  test for an internship, job or flight.
  • For those students who just want to know if they are negative, and do not have symptoms and are not a direct contact.

The student must contact the student health center at (716) 673-3131 for an appointment. The charge will be to the student's FredCard when they are seen in the Student Health Center.

Compliance of policies

When the campus learns of a violation of the rules associated with COVID-19 safety, students may lose access to campus facilities and/or campus housing. Other disciplinary actions may be taken by the Student Conduct and/or Human Resources Offices. Student conduct is governed by the campus Student Rights and Responsibilities Code of Conduct. Minimum sanctions are outlined in the Uniform Sanctioning in Response to COVID-19 Student Violations. Consistent with SUNY policy, students who are partially or completely removed from the institution due to a violation are not eligible for refunds.

Extracurricular activities

While Fredonia’s first priority is - and will always be - the health and well-being of its students, faculty, and staff, we are also mindful that Fredonia’s extracurricular activities and clubs/organizations enhance the student experience and provide learning opportunities that take place outside the classroom. Therefore, while understanding the need to prioritize curricular work, our goal is to enable all activities that can occur safely and within prescribed guidelines. Any approved extra-curricular activities would be subject to the same safety guidelines as any campus activity.

Any student group requesting the use of a campus facility for an extracurricular activity will be required to submit a plan showing how it will follow and enforce campus guidelines concerning social distancing, mask-wearing and other aspects of safe operation. 

  • We will encourage all groups that can utilize video meetings do so.
  • When in person gatherings are necessary, we will encourage students to utilize outdoor and large spaces, when possible. 
  • We will work with groups to determine and assign the best space for their needs based upon guidelines and protocols in place.
  • We will work with the offices that support Student Activities to formalize plans and determine how non-compliance would be handled. 
  • Information to be considered for approval:
    • Number of participants
    • Nature of the activity
    • Use of space by other groups

Intramurals  Intramural sport programs that adhere to New York State Covid-19 guidance for sports and recreation will be offered during the spring, 2021 semester. These activities will include but are not limited to triples volleyball, pickleball, basketball shooting competitions, tennis and some virtual options. We will have additional options for outdoor sports while considering any updates to the New York State guidelines. Our intramural champion tees will be awarded and our Intramural Legend program is still ongoing.

Club sports, in a limited fashion, may be offered in the spring semester based upon current information and guidelines. Club sports, due to the nature of the contests taking place against competition from outside of campus, present an additional challenge as well.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols

Custodial staff are assigned to provide additional cleaning services when possible.  High touch areas continue to be a primary focus along with routine daily cleaning for restrooms, student residence hall bathrooms, common areas, lounges, classrooms, computer labs, meeting rooms, elevators, stairwell railings, etc.  

Disinfection of Frequently Touched Surfaces 

Frequently touched surfaces in common use areas of occupied buildings are cleaned and disinfected daily by the custodial department using products found on the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) list of products registered in New York State and identified by the EPA as effective against COVID-19. When such products are temporarily not available, disinfectants labeled for effectiveness against Human Coronaviruses must be used. 

Examples of frequently touched surfaces include:

  • Restrooms

  • Student bathrooms and lounge spaces

  • Break rooms

  • Kitchen areas

  • Door handles, push plates and push bars

  • Stair handrails

  • Light switches

  • Handles on equipment 

  • Buttons on vending machines and elevators

  • Water fountains and hydration stations

  • Public seating

  • Classroom furniture

  • Theatre seating

Building occupants should use disinfectant wipes or spray provided by Custodial Services to frequently disinfect high touch surfaces in their own work space or shared spaces such as:

  • Shared telephones

  • Shared desktops

  • Shared computer keyboards and mice

  • Service counters

  • Light switches

  • Break area refrigerator and microwave handles

  • Vending machine buttons

  • Door handles and push bars

  • Copy machine controls (verify with manufacturer)
