Chestnut Hill College COVID-19 Dashboard

Chestnut Hill College COVID-19 Dashboard

Dashboard will be updated daily (Monday – Friday) by 2:00 pm during the academic year
Updated 5/16/2021 at 6:03 pm

Please note that CHC's Spring semester ended on May 8, 2021.  For Summer 2021, the COVID-19 Dashboard will be updated on an as needed basis.  Information related to current cases will be posted to this site as it becomes available.  The College will employ its Emergency Notification (Text) Service and/or email if there is a public health situation that necessitates immediate notification.  The College will continue to monitor best practices before determining how to proceed with a Dashboard for Fall 2021.

As a component of its overall health and safety plan, Chestnut Hill College has created a COVID Dashboard including data regarding positive cases, positivity rates, and available quarantine/isolation space related to the on-campus community, Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania.  Testing includes results from symptomatic testing and asymptomatic surveillance testing.  These numbers include cases that have an impact on our community.  Cases identified on campus are referred to contact tracing and individuals are quarantined or isolated at home or in an on-campus location. Research has shown that contact tracing and surveillance testing are key components to limiting the spread of COVID-19 in settings such as colleges.

*Please note: FedEx experienced significant shipping delays due to winter weather across the country the Week of February 15th. Tests sent to the lab via FedEx Overnight were held at Philadelphia International Airport for several days and then rerouted through several cities instead of their scheduled destination.  These tests did not arrive at the lab in time to be run and produce valid and reliable results.  We are reporting the number of tests conducted that week but do not have results.
