Active COVID-19 Cases on Campus and Testing Results

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(s) who has had close contact3 with an infected individual will be notified by the infected individual, the Director of Health Services/Human Resources, and/or the County contact tracing office and will need to quarantine4 as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s recommended guidelines. 

Active cases will be removed from this page once they meet the 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 for those members of the University community who are on campus for any portion of the semester; fully remote persons are not counted. Students, faculty and professional staff are always expected to adhere to mitigation measures and to monitor their symptoms daily.  

**This page will be updated by 9am each weekday.  The last update for Spring semester will be on Friday, May 14, 2021.

Definitions

1Active COVID-19 case: Any individual (students and employees) who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently in isolation because they have not yet met CDC criteria for symptom-based recovery.

2Isolate/isolation: The separation of an individual who is positive for COVID-19 from others who are not sick.

3Close contact: A person who is determined to have spent approximately 15 minutes or more within a 24-hour time frame within six feet of an individual with an active COVID-19 infection during the time the infected person was contagious. More information on guidelines regarding close contact is available at the CDC site.

4Quarantine: Separating oneself from others to closely monitor one’s own health for any symptoms of COVID-19 and obtain testing as necessary in the event exposure to COVID-19 is known or suspected.

5Symptom-based recovery: A period of at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and at least 24 hours since the last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications. Other symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) must also have improved.

 

Historical COVID-19 Testing by Week

Cabrini University is conducting weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing with resident students and student-athletes (resident and commuter).  The information below reflects combined data.  The table will be updated at the end of each week once the results of the testing are known.

NOTE: Cabrini conducted spring semester entry screening for 590 resident students.  As of February 19, 2021, 545 of the 552 students required to provide a negative test were in compliance and were permitted to return to campus housing.  One (1) student tested positive (0.18%), and that student completed isolation at home and has since returned to campus housing.

*Positive in housing means the student is a resident.  It does not necessarily mean they are isolating on campus.
