The University of New Hampshire posts results from its ongoing, regular COVID-19 testing of faculty, staff and students on all three of its campuses (Durham, Manchester, Concord) Monday through Friday each week. The health and safety of our community remain our top priorities and this data is reviewed regularly by senior leadership and used to make decisions about campus operations.
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.
