Case Dashboard — Spring 2022 Data Updated: 05/13/22

The last dashboard update for the 2021–22 academic year was on May 13, 2022, as students begin to move out during finals week and there are fewer students on campus during the summer. We will restart updates in mid-August 2022 when students return.

ACHA is intermittently testing potential campus visitors and other community members who are not directly involved in campus activities. When those persons test positive for COVID-19, they are listed as part of the Crawford County positivity rate. They will not appear as part of our Allegheny College community.

Definitions

Testing Strategy
All students and employees were tested for COVID-19 in the two weeks leading up to the first day of class. We plan to test the entire Allegheny community every two weeks.

Lag Time
Current lag time for test results is generally 2 to 3 days from day of test with a few tests taking longer to return. In March, we will start rapid testing on campus and be reporting both the number of tests administered and the percent positive the next day.

Active Cases
“Active Cases” reflect students currently in isolation with a positive diagnostic test result and employees currently not reporting to work because of a positive diagnostic test result. These case counts include all students and employees who received positive tests and are in isolation, independent of whether the test was administered on campus or off.

Positive Tests to Date
“Positive Tests” includes results from tests administered by Allegheny, as well as positive test results reported to us by students or faculty who were tested at off-campus facilities.

Allegheny-Administered Tests
“Allegheny-Administered Tests” includes both the at-home sampling tests students and employees used before returning to campus and tests administered on campus.

Off-Campus Tests
“Off-Campus Tests” reflects tests of community members currently on campus who received a COVID-19 test not administered by Allegheny College.

Percent Positive
Percent positives is the percentage of Allegheny-administered tests that were positive. We do not know how many tests were administered to students or employees off-campus, so we cannot report the percentage of such tests that were positive, although in the interest of transparency, we do include the count of positive tests from off campus in our count of Positive Tests to Date.
