As of this morning, there are 10 positive COVID-19 cases within our student population, 4 on campus and 6 off-campus. We are currently managing 22 students in quarantine, 3 on campus and 19 off-campus. We have resolved 97 cases that presented since students began returning to campus for the spring semester. A case is resolved when an individual receives medical clearance to leave quarantine or isolation and return to classes/activities. These numbers are updated each weekday morning.
Currently, there are 2 confirmed active positives among faculty and staff and we have resolved 17 cases.
The University continues to operate in Alert Level 2, with its heightened restrictions. Changes in procedures and protocols cannot be considered until we see 14 days without the occurrence of a new positive test.
We will continue to closely monitor and report the number of active positive cases, the number of students isolated or quarantined on campus, and the number of resolved cases. These key operational metrics will be evaluated alongside functional metrics specific to areas such as campus life and our ability to continue delivering a quality academic experience. Together, these metrics will help us determine if and when we may need to move to Alert Level 3, or return to Level 1.
New cases are added to this list by the Health Center as they present.
We are reporting only those cases where the individual is or was present on campus during the 14-day period spanning their infection. Our plan for managing a campus outbreak, including our alert levels, may be found here.
