Confirmed Positive Cases
Quarantines and Isolations
* Student who tested positive is isolating at home.
In an effort to support the health and well-being of our community, the Colleges’ policy regarding travel and symptom related quarantine considers more factors than those requested by New York State. Therefore, quarantine numbers on the HWS dashboard may be higher than those reported on the New York State dashboard.
The fields in this dashboard mimic many of those included on the Ontario County Public Health website. Note that the data we are showing on this dashboard and the data on Ontario County’s website may differ slightly because of when and how the Colleges and Ontario County receive test results.
“Confirmed Positive Cases” refers to the total number of positive cases returned through the Colleges’ testing program with the Broad Institute since HWS began testing on Aug. 3, 2020. Also included are confirmed positive test results of students, faculty or staff who were tested by a provider outside the Colleges’ testing program since Aug. 3, 2020. Note that “Confirmed Positive Cases” includes “Recovered” and “New Cases Today.”
“New Cases Today” are the number of newly identified positive cases on the date of the last update to the dashboard.
“Negative Tests” are the number of tests administered by the Colleges since Aug. 3, 2020 that were returned negative.
“Quarantines and Isolations” refers to the number of students separated from the overall community as a result of exposure to or infection from COVID-19. A quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 in case they become sick. Isolation separates people who have tested positive for COVID-19 from people who are not sick. In an effort to support the health and well-being of our community, the Colleges’ policy regarding travel and symptom related quarantine considers more factors than those requested by New York State. Therefore, quarantine numbers on the HWS dashboard may be higher than those reported on the New York State dashboard.
“Recovered” refers to the number of people who at one time tested positive and who, after a minimum of a 10-day period, have no symptoms of COVID-19. Those who are recovered can return to normal activities.
All members of the HWS community are required to wear a face covering on campus and in classes. The only exceptions are when in your residence hall room or office, or while eating/drinking in a designated dining area. Everyone must comply with the guidelines for wearing face coverings.
Please note that Ontario County reports one additional positive for a student who tested positive at their home well before coming to campus but then tested negative through the Colleges’ testing.
