Holy Cross Surveillance Testing Data
In an effort to quickly identify and address cases of COVID-19 on campus, the College is regularly testing all residential students, any off-campus students who have permission to use on-campus facilities, and faculty and staff whose work will put them in regular contact with others on campus. All students who are accessing campus facilities are tested twice per week, with results returned within 24 hours.
The data on this page show results of our campus surveillance testing program, which is conducted by professionals from Triumvirate and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. Some external test results are tracked, specifically student test results obtained off-campus. Those are tabulated along with other data on the Student Testing Detail pane of the dashboard. The campus testing results are updated multiple times per day.
State and Local Metrics
In order to help keep our students, faculty and staff safe and healthy and make decisions about campus operations this semester and for the Spring 2021 semester, it is important that we understand conditions on campus, locally and in the state.
The metrics on the dashboard will help us to determine if and when changes to our spring plans might be necessary for the health and safety of our college community. As we move into the spring semester, we will be adding more metrics related to college testing, testing compliance, and capacity in our quarantine and isolation spaces to this page.
College leadership, working with medical experts, will be reviewing all of these metrics on a regular basis to determine the implications for College operations.
