COVID Dashboard

Babson’s COVID-19 Dashboard reflects cumulative data from the Fall 2020 semester as well the Spring 2021 semester, which included an enhanced testing protocol for this period of time. The metrics shared on Babson’s COVID-19 Dashboard, as well as daily monitoring of 30 additional health and operational indicators, provided a decision-making framework for targeted interventions and operational shifts designed to help safeguard our community.

The COVID-19 Dashboard will be paused over the summer months as Babson prepares for a full return to an in-person experience in Fall 2021.
