As we enter the final weeks of the fall semester, Babson will shift all classes (Undergraduate and Graduate) online as of Friday, November 13.

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, average test result turn around, 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 protocol includes asymptomatic surveillance testing every seven days for all students, faculty and staff who are working on our campuses.

With the fall semester drawing to a close, all learning is taking place 100% online and the vast majority of our campus operations are remote. We are temporarily pausing our dashboard updates, and will resume twice weekly updates on January 17.

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.
