RIT has created a COVID-19 dashboard to help better assess how to modify current practices and protocols to support the health and safety of our community. It uses data from multiple sources to illustrate and track various metrics, including number of positive cases, the number of students in quarantine and isolation, the percent of isolation beds available on campus, as well as regional factors from Monroe County and the state of New York.
Meanwhile, as student, faculty, and employees are doing many things to protect against the spread of COVID-19—being tested, completing the Daily Health Screen, wearing masks, washing hands, and watching physical distance—RIT is preparing for the next step. Beginning this week and lasting through the semester, RIT will be conducting randomized, self-administered surveillance testing.
Worth a thousand words
We take a look at the start of fall semester 2020 through the lenses of our photographers.
More than 300 students from states on the New York state travel advisory list began their semester under quarantine in local hotels.
Meanwhile, RIT is counting on accountability to keep the campus safe. The university has put many protocols in place to protect the campus for the spread of COVID-19 and is asking community members to hold themselves—and others—accountable for following them.
