COVID-19 Employee Testing Site to Close; Self-Test Kits Will Be Used

The COVID-19 community and employee testing site in Buckham Hall, operated by Quadrant Bioscience, will permanently close as of 4:00 p.m. Thursday, June 30.

Weekly surveillance testing will still be required for any Buffalo State employee who has not yet voluntarily provided proof of vaccination to opt out of weekly testing. Vaccinated employees with a physical presence on campus who have not yet reported receiving their booster shot must test once a month or until they receive their booster and provide proof to Human Resource Management.

Beginning Friday, July 1, testing will be conducted using self-test kits. Test kits are available for pickup and drop-off at the University Police Safe Trade Zone, Chase Hall 126, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may also pick up and drop off test kits at the Human Resource Management Office, Cleveland Hall 403, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tests dropped off after 2:00 p.m. will be delivered to the lab the following business day.

The weekly testing requirement for employees who have not provided proof of vaccination must be met by the close of business each Friday. The monthly testing requirement for employees who have not provided proof of booster must be met by the last business day of the month. 

To expedite the testing process, please register via the online portal. A user guide to the registration process (PDF, 2.4 MB) is available online. Individual test results will continue to be securely posted to the online portal, and test participants will be notified via e-mail when their test results are available. If you require assistance with the self-test kits, please email adminops@buffalostate.edu.

Please note: employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days are temporarily exempt from surveillance testing.
