Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response

COVID-19 Dashboard

This dashboard reflects the number of positive COVID-19 cases, and is regularly updated when the Wright State Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) is able to verify reports. The university's goal is to update the dashboard twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays, when new data is available to report. EHS collects this information from several sources, including Student Health Services at Wright State Physicians, public health agencies, and the COVID-19 Self-Reporting portal. The report below uses the most accurate figures available at the time of posting; information is subject to change as additional data becomes available. Please contact EHS at ehs@wright.edu for additional information.

What happens when someone tests positive for COVID-19?

When a student or employee tests positive for COVID-19, they will need to separate themselves physically until medically cleared. Students and employees are also asked to self-report any probable or positive test results to Environmental Health and Safety. Testing and exposure information will be kept confidential. Gathering testing information from across the university allows us to understand patterns in community spread and make informed decisions to keep our community members safe.

Confidentiality laws prohibit disclosure of individuals’ identities. Anyone believed to have been in close contact with an infected individual will be contacted. In cases where the university is not made aware of a positive test result by a student or employee, those cases would not be included in these totals.

Environmental Health and Safety will serve as the point of contact of all university-related confirmed or probable COVID-19 cases. EHS will receive notifications from Student Health Services, local public health agencies, and the EHS employee self-report portal. EHS will call or email the individual with a positive or probable result to conduct a preliminary case investigation that focuses on campus environments and interactions. The work by EHS is intended to supplement the case investigation and tracing calls from local public health employees. Visit the Health and Safety Protocols page to learn more about Wright State's testing, notification, contact tracing, and quarantine procedures.

Definitions

Confirmed case: In accordance with state health department and Wright State University reporting protocols, the home county health department of an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 has notified Wright State’s Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and is working with the university to commence contact tracing because the individual is believed to have been on campus recently.

Self-reported case: A Wright State student or employee who may or may not have been on campus recently has self-reported that they have tested positive to Wright State Office of Environmental Health and Safety, their supervisor, Wright State employees in Residence Life and Housing, or other Wright State professionals who have then notified EHS. Self-reported cases can also include instances where a student or employee has engaged in testing through Student Health Services or Wright State Physicians, tested positive, and those results were shared with EHS. Self-reported cases may also come from surveillance testing of students and employees.
