COVID-19 Dashboard

Campus Alert Level: Yellow (Low Alert)

Drew University has established color-coded alert levels to indicate the status of campus operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Drew’s COVID-19 dashboard reflects our commitment to transparency related to the health and safety of our campus community.

The data below represents results of testing performed on members of our campus community as part of our spring 2021 on-campus testing protocol, which began on January 3, 2021. The dashboard will be updated at least twice weekly, generally on Tuesdays and Fridays.

For clarifications on the terminology, some of which may be used in future data reporting, please see our glossary of terms.

Note: If you are a student tested at a facility other than Drew University and receive a positive result, please notify Health Services as soon as possible. If you are an employee tested at a facility other than Drew University and receive a positive result, please notify Human Resources as soon as possible.

Glossary of Terms

Students: Refers to students living/learning/coming to campus. This does not include students who are learning completely remotely.

Employees: Refers to employees who are physically on campus in any capacity. It does not include employees who are working completely remotely.

Active Cases: Students/employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently in isolation.

Resolved Cases: Students/employees who tested positive for COVID-19 and have been cleared from isolation.

Positive Tests: This reflects the total number of positive cases on campus. It will not include students who are completely remote and may have tested positive at home. Students who are living or coming to campus who are tested at a facility outside of Drew and test positive will be included in this data.

Test Results: The number of tests that are conducted on campus, including regular screening and surveillance testing and testing of symptomatic students who present to the Health Service.

Campus Alert Level Green: The green (COVID normal) level indicates a very low prevalence rate of the virus on campus and allows for in-person living and learning with health and safety protocols in place.

Campus Alert Level Yellow: The yellow (low alert) level indicates an increase in virus prevalence, which would result in reduced density of employees on campus and reduced capacity for in-person living and learning with extensive health and safety protocols in place.

Campus Alert Level Orange: The orange (medium alert) level may require a pause to in-person learning, a further reduction in the density of employees on campus, temporarily suspending some campus operations, and/or restricting movement on campus.

Campus Alert Level Red: The red (high alert) level is the most restrictive and could lead to extended virtual learning and business operations and/or campus-wide quarantine or closure.
