COVID-19 Dashboard

This webpage is maintained weekly to inform the campus community of COVID-19 exposure on campus.   Cases that are confirmed to be positive for the 2019 novel coronavirus are included.  Details of each case are provided by the individuals themselves; that information is then reported following HIPAA and public health guidelines.

Quarantine and isolation are used to keep individuals who are sick or might be sick away from others. Individuals are required to quarantine or isolate when they have symptoms of, or tested positive for, COVID-19; when they have been in close contact with someone who has symptoms of, or tested positive for, COVID-19; or has traveled internationally. More information is available in the Healthy at Thomas More guidelines.

While we understand the concerns around COVID-19, it is important to continue to practice appropriate preventative strategies.  We must all take the necessary precautions to keep our community healthy and safe.  Any individual who has received a positive test result, is symptomatic or being tested, or has interacted with someone who has tested positive or experienced symptoms, should call Campus Safety at 859-341-4867.

In addition, various subpopulations are regularly reviewed, including faculty, staff, athletic teams, residence halls, and on-ground courses. If the proportion of a specific subpopulation is positive or in isolation or quarantine within these thresholds, the individual subpopulation is reviewed to consider appropriate actions. Given the small number of individuals within some of our subpopulations, specific action steps are carefully considered and implemented when necessary.less than 5%between 5-15%greater than 15%
