The dashboard is updated at least four times a week as the College receives results for each of the two days of testing in a week (Mondays and Thursdays in the Spring 2022 semester) and updates on numbers of current cases. The dashboard tracks both the volume of testing and the number of positive test results. The percentage of positive results and the number of active cases are two factors the College will track in order to determine the campus alert status and to make informed decisions about changes to campus operations.
