In an effort to provide the community with real-time information, beginning Tuesday, September 8, we will be updating the COVID-19 Dashboard daily with numbers of tests taken, positive results, and positivity rates, as well as numbers of students quarantining or isolating on campus.
Some of you may have noticed that one statistic, hospitalizations, is no longer included on the dashboard. Our aim was to provide as complete a picture of the virus’s impact on the community as possible, but we have come to realize that, unlike universities with affiliated medical centers, we have no way to track those numbers with 100 percent certainty. As full transparency and accuracy are our ultimate goal in presenting the dashboard, we felt it best to leave hospitalizations off.
