Active COVID-19 Cases on Campus
At Cabrini University, the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is—and always will be—our top priority.
We also believe it is of vital importance that we keep our community as informed as possible during these unprecedented and uncertain times.
To ensure that all members of the Cabrini community are fully informed, the University will collect and share information regarding active COVID-19 cases1.
Any member of the Cabrini community who tests positive for COVID-19 will be advised to isolate2 in accordance with best practices. Residence houses have been reserved as isolation space for students living in campus housing who test positive and need a place to isolate because they are unable to go home. Any person or persons who have had close contact3 with an infected individual will be notified either by the infected individual or the County contact tracing office and will need to self-quarantine4 for 14 days.
Cases will be removed from this page once they meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) criteria for symptom-based recovery5.
Please note that due to the complex nature of Cabrini University’s population, all active case counts are classified generally to the best of the University’s knowledge. These counts are intended to provide guidance to help the public and University community generally understand patterns of positive cases within the Cabrini community and not to replace contact tracing efforts by the local health departments.

*The number of active cases reflects those cases self-reported to Health Services and Human Resources at Cabrini University. Cabrini University is not conducting COVID testing on campus, however, students, faculty and professional staff are always expected to adhere to mitigation measures and to monitor their symptoms daily. "On Campus" does not necessarily mean the student is isolating on campus, but that the student or employee is not entirely remote/onine for the Fall semester.
