COVID Dashboard

As we welcome many Babson community members back to campus for the spring 2021 semester, we have relaunched the Babson COVID-19 Dashboard. 

The dashboard will be updated every Sunday and Wednesday, highlighting new data as well as cumulative data from the start of the spring semester (January 10). It will also be shared via Twitter and Facebook.

The dashboard reflects enhanced testing protocols in place for this semester, including twice weekly testing for all students, employees and affiliates on campus. Data will reflect this increased testing cadence and other important information relating to the health of our campus communities such as the number of tests conducted, average test result turnaround, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, and trends in positive test results and percent positivity rates, consistent with local and state reporting protocols. 

The metrics shared on Babson’s COVID-19 Dashboard, as well as daily monitoring of 30 additional health and operational indicators, provide a decision-making framework for targeted interventions and operational shifts designed to help safeguard our community.

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.
