On-Campus COVID-19 Testing and Positivity Rates

Below is current information for the fall 2021 semester. Tests results are published to this dashboard daily. Please note that the data below reflects the most current data feed provided to us by TCCS’ Student Health Services (SHS), which administers COVID testing for the College. HMC is committed to informing our community of positive cases within 24 hours of becoming aware of the positive case, and we will do so by an email to our community. Note that there is a time lag with the data feed provided to us from SHS, as such, the information presented on this dashboard may not be as updated as the information included in our email announcements to our community. The time lag is longer over the weekends and holidays. Once we receive an updated date feed from SHS, we will update this dashboard.

Please email communications@hmc.edu if you have questions about this dashboard.

Students

The College requires twice-weekly COVID-19 screening testing for all unvaccinated students who live on campus and who regularly come to campus and once per week testing for all vaccinated students. Recently the CDC has changed its stance from a position that fully vaccinated individuals who come into close contact with someone suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should be tested within 3–5 days after exposure to COVID-19. For additional information, please visit the Residential Requirements page.

Faculty and Staff

Unvaccinated employees are asked to test twice weekly while working on campus. Fully vaccinated employees are not asked to test. They may voluntarily choose to be tested by SHS if they are asymptomatic and would like to be tested.

Data Definitions

Students

All students that are residing in on-campus housing or College-managed housing during the current term.

Faculty and Staff

All faculty and staff who report to campus to perform their work on a regular basis. This includes visiting faculty and temporary employees.

Positivity Rate

Harvey Mudd College follows guidance from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for calculating positivity rates and uses the “Test over Test” method. (Number of positive tests/(Number of positive tests + Number of negative tests).
