This COVID-19 Dashboard reflects information from January 25, 2021 to May 25, 2021. The following is for informational purposes only.

RIT’s COVID-19 dashboard is a source of information for our university community to remain updated on the most accurate data related to campus during the pandemic. Using data from multiple sources to illustrate and track various metrics, the dashboard will inform our decision-making related to campus operations.

This dashboard is updated by 4 p.m. each day, Monday-Friday.
