NEW YORK (WKBW) — SUNY has launched an upgraded COVID-19 tracker with additional trend and comparative data to help with responding to cases faster on campuses.

New updates to the tracker include the following

  • Breakdown Provided for Students and Employees
  • Quarantine/Isolation Room Capacity Tracker
  • Monthly Trend Totals
  • Historic Data Charts
  • State-Region-County-Campus Positivity Rate Comparisons for SUNY’s 64 College and Universities

SUNY has enhanced the following with the tracker

  • Testing data broken down by faculty/staff and students; including total tests, positives, and positivity rates
  • Quarantine/Isolation space capacity calculator system-wide and by campus
  • State-Region-County-Campus positivity rate comparisons, mapped with filtering capabilities
  • Monthly aggregate testing trends
  • Historic trends mapped system-wide and by campus

“Our students, faculty, and staff have done a tremendous job keeping the virus at bay. Going into the spring semester we must remain vigilant and SUNY’s comprehensive health and safety protocols—like mask wearing at all times—will help to tackle problems as they emerge,” said Chancellor Malatras. “Key to our strategy is having robust data to track, isolate, and address cases as they arise, especially as cases remain high in communities outside of our campuses. SUNY’s enhanced COVID-19 data dashboard is like a GPS on this virus. The pandemic isn’t over, and we will see cases, but we know what we need to do, and our students have come back ready to do their part to stay safe and continue their studies.”

The current positivity rate among all SUNY campuses is 0.53 percent.
