Union College defines cases as confirmed positive cases, and defines quarantines as individuals quarantined for potential exposure awaiting a test result. New refers to either positive results or students entering quarantine within the last 48 hours. This data reflects cases and quaratines on campus.

Historical Data:

Between August 21 - 24, Union College tested just over 200 individuals, including the testing of one entire athletic team, as well as the residual members of the dormitory where the overwhelming majority of the team members resided. That patch of testing revealed 28 positive test results, indicating a roughly 10% positivity rating. This testing was conducted without regard to symptoms. Among the positive results, almost all were on the targeted athletic team, with one additional positive identified in two additional sports. 

Our discussions with Local Health Officials seem to indicate that the clustering in one team means that protocols and procedures appear to be effective in preventing inter-team exposure. The College will remain viligilant and continues to encourage individual members of the campus community to adhere to all relevant guidance, including hand washing, social distancing, and mask use, to name just a few.
