The University of New Hampshire is no longer producing a dashboard as testing will be voluntary after the fall semester is underway. University leadership will communicate with the community as necessary.
- Data are presented according to the date tests are administered. Counts for most recent dates may be incomplete, but will be updated as results are reported.
- Cases include UNH students, faculty, staff and contractors reported from all sources, including those outside of the UNH testing program.
- Isolation keeps someone who is sick or tested positive for COVID-19 without symptoms away from others. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/COVID-19-Quarantine-vs-Isolation.pdf
- Quarantine refers to the practice of separating individuals who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 to determine whether they develop symptoms or test positive for the disease. Quarantine also reduces the risk of transmission if an individual is later found to have COVID-19. Quarantine for COVID-19 should last for a period of 14 days after the exposure has ended.
- A close contact is defined as any individual who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 10-15 minutes starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to positive specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
- Average Daily Total Tests is the average of all tests conducted in the last seven days, including those with a positive, negative, inconclusive or pending status.
- Total Results represents the count of tests with a result of positive or negative.
- Positivity rate is the percentage of positive tests in relation to the total resulted tests. (Note: Students are routinely tested multiple times per week as part of the University's testing protocol).
- Positive Tests as % of People Tested is the percentage of positive tests in relation to the testing population.
- Cumulative data reflects UNH’s initiation of protocols starting in late July for regular screening through COVID-19 testing. See details of UNH's testing program.
