With the fall semester underway, President Leahy announced a new COVID-19 Campus Dashboard on Sept. 16 to uphold the University’s commitment to transparency. The dashboard, which will be updated daily by 4 p.m., and can be accessed at monmouth.edu/dashboard, tracks cumulative confirmed COVID-19 cases among residential students, non-residential students, and employees who are working on campus—even if on a flexible schedule—as well the number of university-sponsored beds occupied by students currently in quarantine or isolation.
The dashboard also reflects the number of students living off campus in the local community who may have in-person or hybrid courses on campus and who are in quarantine or isolation at their homes in the community.
“I hope that our students, their families, and our employees will find this dashboard to be a useful source of information as we work to keep our campus and surrounding communities as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Leahy said.
He also reminded the campus community that if anyone becomes aware of an employee/student who tests positive for COVID-19, they should notify Health Services by contacting Kathy Maloney at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Just as we did in the spring, this is an important part of our overall campus health and safety plan. Our health professionals will provide medical guidance, track progress, conduct contact tracing as required and provide medical clearance when needed,” Leahy said.
