Random Testing

*Please take a moment to read the corresponding notice from VP, Ken Ihrer.  https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/vp-operations/blog/cleared4-access 

Dear CCNY Community,

As communicated to you through a memo by EVC Batista on Wednesday, November 17th, CUNY has started random testing of vaccinated faculty, staff and students who come to campus.  If you are selected for random testing, you will have seven days to complete your testing at one of the CUNY testing centers, including the CCNY center in the NAC building.  The test does not require an appointment.

If you receive a negative test, you will retain your Cleared4 blue pass.  If you receive a positive test, your blue pass will be suspended and you will be contacted by CCNY’s CVOID response team with further guidance on your status and how/when you can return to campus.  If for some reason you are not coming to campus and you receive a notice to test, you can send us an email at covidtesting@ccny.cuny.edu and we can suspend your Cleared4 pass until you are ready to return to campus and in the interim you will not receive random test requests.  Please notify us if your on-campus status changes and we can return you to the testing pool and clear your blue pass.

Because we are now performing random testing, we will need to discontinue the use of the V-22 sticker access that we have been using for access to campus, as well as the Excelsior Pass.  The only means of access to campus, starting Monday, 12/6/21 will be through the Cleared4 blue pass for vaccinated individuals and the Cleared4 green pass for tested individuals.

If you do not know how to access your Cleared4 Pass, please send an email to covidtesting@ccny.cuny.edu for instructions and your personal link for access.  In order for you to receive a blue pass in Cleared4, you must have uploaded your vaccination information into CUNY First.  If you have questions about how to upload your vaccination information, please contact our Service Desk at 212-650-7878 or at servicedesk@ccny.cuny.edu .
