Understanding The Dashboards: At times, there may be discrepancies in our dashboard counts
because of the timing of the data refresh, self-reported tests and status changes of cases.

Understanding This Dashboard:

  • COVID-19 cases reported on this dashboard include faculty, staff and students who are interacting on the Reynolda Campus and have known positive, laboratory-verified test results reported to the university. It does not include pre-arrival testing. Affiliate employees are included in the faculty/staff totals.
  • The dashboard will be updated each weekday.
  • The dashboard numbers reset as of Jan. 1, 2022.
  • Between Jan. 1-Jan. 11, the dashboard incorrectly included positive cases from students who had tested positive before arriving on campus. The cases were removed and the totals updated on Jan. 12.
  • Positive cases are reported based on the date of the test, meaning the dashboard will reflect updates on past days.
