A student in our current on-campus population has tested positive for COVID-19, and is isolating off campus. The student was tested off campus.
Three cases are currently classified as active in our campus community. One student is in quarantine on campus, and no students are in isolation on campus.
This is the first new active case in our in-person population that will be counted on our COVID-19 dashboard for spring 2021. As announced earlier this week, we reset the dashboard and archived fall 2020 statistics in order to highlight information that could have an impact on current campus safety.
The dashboard remains a source of up-to-date information about current active cases, total cases last week, total recoveries, data on on-campus student testing and positivity rates for those on-campus tests, and information about students quarantining and isolating on campus.
This dashboard does not include information about positive cases among students taking online courses from home, or employees who are telecommuting and not coming to campus, as any such cases should not pose an on-campus health risk.
We will continue reporting new active cases of COVID-19 in our campus community (defined as students or employees who have been on campus and may have infected others) in the Daily Digest email newsletter and on the COVID-19 dashboard, Monday – Friday throughout the spring 2021 semester.
