COVID-19 Dashboard

Misericordia University maintains this page to inform our campus community and others about the number of known COVID-19 cases among students, and employees on campus. This information only includes confirmed on-campus cases as reported to the university through established reporting protocols. The university has no way of knowing about cases not reported to the university through these established reporting protocols. 

Our reporting focus will be on-campus cases as they represent the highest risk to the overall health and safety of our campus community. On campus is defined as any individual who was physically present on campus at least 1 of the 14 days prior to their confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis. Those working and learning in an exclusively remote arrangement, who have not been on campus, are not reported in these numbers. 

Confirmed COVID-19 cases and specific information about them are considered confidential health care information and may not be shared in detail.  Any individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 is required to isolate, and anyone believed to be at risk for exposure will be contacted by a Contact Tracer and asked to self-quarantine as per our protocols and those from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and CDC. An active case is defined as an individual who is COVID-19 positive and remains in isolation.
