Fall 2021 Reporting
Wilkes University’s COVID-19 Dashboard is intended to document suspected and confirmed cases of the virus among the campus community as well as the vaccination rate. The dashboard is updated twice daily, at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and pulls data from multiple sources to track various metrics which help inform our decision making.
Students enrolled in our fully online undergraduate and graduate programs, who are not otherwise on campus, are excluded from this report as their distance from the campus eliminates their exposure to others within our student body. The report includes all employees who are being tested as reported to Human Resources.
For information on our surrounding community, visit COVID-19 Data for Pennsylvania and the COVID-19 Early Warning Monitoring System Dashboard from the Pennsylvania Dept. of Health. Users can sort this data by county and zip code.
For questions about this dashboard, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Quarantine: Unvaccinated students who have been exposed to a positive but have not tested positive themselves will quarantine at home or in off-campus spaces, which is first recommended. Otherwise, students will be asked to relocate to designated housing. Vaccinated students do not need to quarantine, but should seek testing within two to five days of exposure and monitor their symptoms.
- Isolation: Students who tested positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, will isolate at home or in off-campus spaces, which is first recommended. All residential students who need to isolate on campus will be moved to designated housing until they are cleared to return to normal activity by Health and Wellness Services.
- Assurance testing: The total number of tests taken (and the results) include unvaccinated students, faculty and staff who are tested as part of the assurance testing program. Please note that unvaccinated student-athletes will be tested multiple times a week, per NCAA guidance.
- NEW: Corrected dashboard figures: Note that due to a technical error, the total number of assurance tests listed in the “Cumulative Student Tests” section was over reported and has been corrected as of Sept. 13. The positivity rate was also corrected. We regret the error.
