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.
