On Monday, Sept. 6, Eastern Kentucky University’s COVID-19 Data Dashboard returned to full functioning capacity. The dashboard, designed to track the reported COVID-19 cases for students and faculty, had previously remained non-functional nearly a month into the fall 2021 semester. As of Sept. 8, EKU has experienced 39 total reported cases. Twenty-two of those cases are currently still active.
Similar to the last academic year, the COVID-19 Data Dashboard provides students and staff with the number of active and total reported COVID-19 cases for residential students, non-residential students and faculty members. Data is updated Monday through Friday and case numbers reflect confirmed test results from on-campus testing site(s), a health department, or by an individual who self-reports.
Individuals who test positive at an off-campus testing facility are required to report their results via the COVID-19 Self Monitoring form. Following this, students will be contacted by an official contact tracer and proceed to a quarantine location or begin quarantine in their dormitory or home, depending on their living situation.
Cases not reported from off-campus testing sites or cases that are not self-reported do not appear on the dashboard.
