COVID Dashboard

The Babson COVID-19 Dashboard provides information relating to the health of our campus communities by transparently sharing metrics such as the number of tests conducted, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, and trends in positive test results and percent positivity rates, consistent with local and state reporting protocols. Our testing operation is well underway and operating effectively. The dashboard data will be refreshed and published twice weekly. The current publish schedule is every Wednesday and Sunday.

Glossary

The number of tests conducted in a given time period (either a seven day snapshot or cumulative from August 5, 2020 on the Babson dashboard) includes all tests performed on Babson’s campus, across all stakeholder groups (faculty, staff, students and affiliates). Tests conducted includes both asymptomatic surveillance tests and testing of symptomatic individuals through Babson’s Health Services. 

The running 7 day average of the positive test rate, weighted (calculated as the positive tests for the last 7 days added together divided by the new tests for the last 7 days added together).

Total number of positive molecular COVID-19 tests in a specific time period divided by the total number of molecular COVID-19 tests in that same time period.

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases based on positive test results in a given period. Presumptive cases are not included in the positive case number. Three or fewer cases are reported as such (≤ 3) for confidentiality purposes.
