Explanation of included data.
Active Cases: The total number of people in the on-campus College community with active COVID-19 infection.
Positive Tests: The total number of positive COVID-19 tests collected since the College’s testing program began on July 13, 2020.**
Note: A person can test positive for up to 90 days after their initial infection; these persistent positive test results are excluded from this number.
** Prior to 7/13/20 the College had two positive COVID-19 cases.
Total Tests: The total number of COVID-19 tests collected since the College’s testing program began on July 13, 2020.
Positivity Rate: The sum of positive COVID-19 tests divided by the total number of tests collected (over the past 7 days).
Test Turnaround Time: The average time between when each test is collected and the time that a result is determined for that test (over the past 7 days).
Testing Frequency: Students living on campus are tested three times weekly. Faculty and staff are tested one or two times weekly, depending on the frequency and duration of time spent on campus.
Students in Isolation: The number of students with active COVID-19 infection isolating in College-provided isolation housing.
Available Isolation Space: The number of available COVID-19 isolation rooms divided by the total number of isolation rooms.
Note: Separate dedicated space exists for students who are under the care of Health Services while the nature of their illness is being determined through testing (e.g. seasonal flu, mono, strep throat, etc. vs. COVID-19). These spaces are not used for housing students with confirmed COVID-19 infection and are not included in the isolation data. If a student under observation tests positive for COVID-19, they will be moved into a COVID-19 isolation room.
Students in Quarantine: The number of students identified via the College’s contact tracing program as having been in close contact with someone with active COVID-19 infection and are quarantining in College-provided housing.
Available Quarantine Space: The number of available quarantine rooms divided by the total number of quarantine rooms.
Note: Students that have traveled away from campus briefly for an approved reason (e.g. specialty medical appointment) are asked to quarantine until they receive negative test results. Students in travel-related quarantines are not included in the quarantine data as there is no known exposure and the roomss they occupy could be quickly made available for exposed students.
