As the pandemic continues to evolve and we adapt university testing protocols accordingly, the specific data points originally presented on this dashboard are diminishing in value. The numbers only tell one part of the story. With the vast majority of our community vaccinated and the less virulent omicron variant representing most new cases, we are in a much different situation now than in previous semesters.

Test positivity rates for the spring semester 2022 will be higher and are incomparable to past semesters now that the university is testing primarily symptomatic individuals. So please consider the data with these shifts in mind.

As the public health situation continues to change and guidance from experts is refreshed, the university may revise its protocols and how data are reported. Our goal is to continue providing the most transparent and useful portrayal of public health in the JMU community while in dynamic and complex circumstances.

Beginning January 18, 2022, the university will be sharing when warranted status updates of the percentage of both students and employees who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Data on the number of new COVID-19 cases identified through university testing and the percent positivity rate of testing will be updated daily Monday through Friday at 10 a.m.
