Definitions

1 Active cases on campus are those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 who are still within the 10-day window of time that began on either the date of onset of symptoms, or the date of positive test (whichever comes first).

2 On campus is defined as students and employees who physically visited the UA Little Rock campus within two days of the COVID-19 diagnosis.

3 Off campus is defined as students and employees who were not on the UA Little Rock campus within two days of the COVID-19 diagnosis.

4 The CDC defines isolation as ‘[separating] sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.’ Campus Living reserved approximately eighty spaces for isolation purposes. These spaces will be utilized for on-campus residents who have received a positive COVID-19 test result but are unable to return home.

The CDC defines quarantine as an effort that ‘separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.’ Employees and non-residential students will self-quarantine off campus. On-campus residents who are unable to return home to self-quarantine will quarantine in their assigned private bedroom. UA Little Rock is limiting capacity in the residence halls to one student per bedroom to allow residents to quarantine in-place if required.

5 Prior to the designation of isolation rooms, two students isolated on-campus during the summer of 2020.

6 Testing is done on weekdays when Health Services is open for business. Weekend days are excluded from the 7-day average, as are weekdays when no in-house tests are done, so their values of zero won’t impact the true average.
