SUNY Launches COVID Tracker Enhancements
As students return to campus for the spring semester, Jim Malatras, State University of New York chancellor, has launched enhancements to the COVID-19 Tracker dashboard. The upgrades allow additional transparency on SUNY’s 64 colleges and universities, so campuses have the most information to isolate and respond to emerging cases on campuses. Those visiting the dashboard will continue to review vital information on daily and weekly test and positivity data. Malatras announced last month that all SUNY campuses will increase the frequency of SUNY’s mandatory COVID testing to weekly testing of all students, faculty, and staff who regularly report to campus. Since the 2020-2021 academic year began in August, SUNY has conducted 849,140 tests with a .53 positive percentage rate. The COVID-19 Case Tracker dashboard launched in September provides a case count for all SUNY campuses and for individual campuses. The data is reported by campuses every 24 hours and added to the dashboard in real time.
