On-Campus Positivity Rate

UA Little Rock is scheduled to receive an Abbott ID Now machine for COVID-19 testing during October 2020. Once on-campus testing becomes available, the number of students and employees tested on campus, the number of students and employees who tested positive on campus, and an on campus positivity rate will be provided.


Definitions

1 Active cases are estimates based on cases being within a 14-day window from their test date. More accurate data will be available soon when Arkansas Department of Health sends release from isolation letters to Health Services.

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

3 Off campus is defined as students and employees who were not on the UA Little Rock campus within fourteen 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.
