COVID-19 cases reported on this dashboard include positive, laboratory-verified test results reported to the university physician. These include only those who were on campus during the time when they were contagious. In cases where a student or employee fails to disclose to the university that they have tested positive, the university will have no way of knowing and communicating that information. Thus, the information on this dashboard includes only cases that the university has been made aware of. The charts above have been created to make the data visible. The Y axis will be adjusted throughout our monitoring to continue this practice.

Confidentiality laws prohibit the university from disclosing any identifying information about affected individuals. Individuals who have tested positive will be isolated, and those believed to be at risk for exposure will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine.

Notification, Quarantine, Isolation and Tracing COVID-19 Cases

In the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19, the university will follow contact tracing and notification protocols as directed by local and state health authorities. Details of the notification and contact tracing protocols can be found on the Notification & Contact Tracing page. The plan for quarantine and isolation can be found on the Quarantine & Isolation Protocols page.

Elon’s COVID-19 Alert System

Elon University is operating on a four-level COVID-19 Alert System for fall semester. Data gathered from on-campus sources and health providers in the region will allow university leaders to set color-coded alert levels. The model is based on 12 key data points that are among 45 COVID-19 metrics the university is tracking daily. Eighty percent of the model weighting is based on data from the Elon University community and 20 percent of the model is based on data from Alamance County and Cone Health System, which serves Triad counties.
