As we prioritize the care and protection of our campus community, Cedarville University has implemented a proactive response strategy:

  • Testing of all symptomatic students as well as testing for athletes pursuant to NCAA requirements

  • Immediate contact tracing to identify individuals who may have been exposed to infection, even if COVID-19 is not yet confirmed

  • Precautionary quarantine for any students who may have been exposed to an individual who has exhibited COVID-related symptoms or who has tested positive for COVID-19

  • Isolation for any student who has exhibited symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or who has a lab-confirmed test result

One of the results of this cautious response strategy is a very fluid tracking scenario. Quarantine numbers fluctuate daily as students are notified of potential exposure or released when their contact’s test result is returned as a negative. On average, we are finding that approximately five (5) students are asked to quarantine for every one (1) student who has either presented with COVID-like symptoms or has a lab-confirmed positive test.

The best indicator of campus containment of COVID-19 is the current count of undergraduate or graduate students who are enrolled in a residential program of study and are currently in isolation due to a lab-confirmed positive test. The COVID-19 reporting dashboard is updated daily.

Although faculty and staff are required to follow Caring Well. Staying Well. protocols related to testing, self-quarantine, and isolation, they are not mandated to report this HIPAA-protected health information to the University as their employer.
