Alert Level 2COVID-19 Dashboard:

The University’s highest priority is the safety of its students, faculty, staff and visitors. As a way to keep our University community informed, the following dashboard has been created that will report the latest University numbers on the Adrian campus regarding COVID-19.

Here are a couple of definitions to remember:

  • Isolation: separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
  • Quarantine: separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
  Adrian Campus Faculty/Staff Vaccinated (fully or partially) Adrian Campus Students Vaccinated (fully or partially) Cumulative COVID Positive Result Cumulative COVID Negative Result Cumulative Co-curricular Testing Result Pending In Isolation Out of Isolation (recovered) In Quarantine Cumulative Out of Quarantine Current Adrian Campus Threat Level

* Out of those who voluntarily responded to the university's vaccination status survey.

The dashboard numbers above are for the 2021-22 academic year.
