What to expect when you visit our building

Our doors are currently locked, even when we're open. That's so we can limit the number of people entering our building in order to protect students and our staff from being unnecessarily exposed to COVID-19.

When you schedule an in-person appointment, you should come to our building at your scheduled appointment time and call the phone number posted on our door to let us know you're here. A staff member dressed in full PPE (mask, gown, face shield) will meet you at the door, take your temperature, and note any symptoms you have before escorting you to the next appropriate location within Cornell Health. 

Note: Most students will be asked to arrive at the Ho Plaza entrance (Level 4). However students with mobility-related issues may also arrive at Level 1.

Pre-appointment questionnaires 

Pre-appointment questionnaires are required for most appointments (not required for allergy and immunization visits).

You must complete your pre-appointment questionnaire(s) before your visit. Log in to myCornellHealth and click "Appointments."

  • If questionnaires are not completed before your visit, you may be asked to reschedule.
  • If a questionnaire you receive does not seem to match your health concern, call us during business hours (607-255-5155) to discuss.

Note: Occupational Medicine patients will receive questionnaire information by email with instructions for accessing questionnaires through myCority, not myCornellHealth.
