Updates have been added to Tulane’s COVID-19 Dashboard which was launched on Sept. 4 to keep the university community informed about testing results.

In addition to the number of tests conducted, the number of positive results, active cases and overall positivity rate, the dashboard now breaks down the cumulative numbers of positive results among students by undergraduates living on-campus, undergraduates living off-campus and graduate students. Employee numbers are segmented by faculty, staff and contract workers.

To view these breakdowns, visitors to the dashboard site should hover over the information icon located next to the cumulative numbers for students and employees.

Isolation and quarantine numbers have also been added to the dashboard in the form of a graph showing students isolating in Paterson Hall, along with the remaining capacity there, as well as close contacts in quarantine at the Hyatt Regency and its capacity. Additional overflow capacity is available for both locations.

As recently reported in Tulane Today the university’s dashboard received an “A” rating from the Twitter account We Rate COVID Dashboards (@CovidDashboards).
