Susquehanna University's dashboard provides transparent and timely information about Covid-19 prevalence. The dashboard has been paused as of the end of the spring semester.
You can continue to follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health weekly Early Warning Monitoring System Dashboard here. They include information for Snyder County and neighboring counties of the Susquehanna Valley.
Cumulative cases include persons who have recovered.
|Student Cases||Employee Cases|
Confirmed cases would include lab-confirmed results of on-campus students and employees. The dashboard does not include students participating in class remotely or away from campus the entire semester, nor employees approved to work remotely for the entire semester.
Student cases would include on-campus resident and commuter cases reported to the Student Health Center.
Employee cases would include faculty and staff members as well as the employees of the university’s bookstore, dining and housekeeping services reported to Human Resources.
Positivity rates would include random asymptomatic individual testing results conducted by Susquehanna, as well as tests results by individuals in residence areas under testing protocol. Self-reported positive test results would be reflected in cumulative and weekly case statistics, but would not affect positivity rates by default, as self-reported negative tests would not be reported consistently; and adding only the self-reported positives into the calculation would be an inaccurate representation of the rates.
Federal privacy laws prohibit the university from disclosing identifying information about affected individuals.
Everyone must monitor for symptoms daily. Students who are ill or believe they may have been exposed to Covid-19 should contact the Student Health Center. Faculty and staff should contact their physician and notify their supervisor or contact Human Resources.
