Drexel Campus with Dragon

Drexel COVID-19 Dashboard*

Drexel University remains committed to providing the safest learning and working environment possible. In addition to implementing health and safety measures including mandatory social distancing, masking requirements, and marked reduction in occupancy in campus buildings the University will collect and share information on active COVID-19 cases within our community to help everyone stay informed.

Active Case:  Any individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently in isolation because they have not yet met CDC criteria for symptom-based recovery is considered an active COVID-19 case.

Case data will be organized into three categories:

  1. An on-campus case refers to a member of the Drexel community who lived in or visited a Drexel facility during the time they were infectious.
  2. An off-campus case refers to a member of the Drexel community who is not known to have lived in nor visited a campus facility during the time they were infectious, and available information indicates that they reside in Philadelphia.
  3. A non-campus case refers to a member of the Drexel community who is not known to have lived in nor visited a campus facility during the time they were infectious, and available information indicates that they reside outside of the City of Philadelphia but within Pennsylvania.

DATA DASHBOARD

Case counts include Drexel employees and Drexel students at the following Drexel campuses in Philadelphia: University City campus, Center City campus, and Queen Lane campus. Cases will be removed once an individual has recovered and are no longer considered infectious per CDC guidelines.

Active cases will be updated Monday through Friday on this site

REPORTING A COVID-19 CASE OR EXPOSURE

It is imperative that the University is aware of any exposure risk to members of the Drexel community.

Students should report any exposure to COVID-19, even if they are not living on campus. Students who are diagnosed with COVID-19 or were exposed to someone who tested positive should contact the Student Health Center by phone (215.220.4700) or through the Drexel Health Tracker app to receive further instruction.  A member of our health and safety team will contact the student to provide health guidance and assist with quarantine or isolation. In conjunction with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, Student Health will also try to identify where the student may have been exposed to the infection and work to identify and confidentially alert additional contacts, so they can quarantine, monitor their health and not spread the virus.

Faculty and staff should report any exposure to COVID-19, even if they are not working on campus. Faculty and professional staff who are diagnosed with COVID-19 or were exposed to someone who tested positive should contact covid19health@drexel.edu and provide their name and phone number.  A member of our health and safety team will contact you, provide guidance and continue to monitor your symptoms until you are cleared to return to work.

SELF-ISOLATION & QUARANTINE

Isolation separates those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 from others to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Whether symptomatic or not, students and employees who test positive for COVID-19 will be asked to self-isolate for a period of at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms or from positive test result if asymptomatic.

Quarantine separates people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 so that they can monitor their health for the development of symptoms and obtain testing if necessary. Those who have been exposed to an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.

If you feel sick: Go to What to Do if You Feel Sick for additional information for students, faculty and professional staff on what to do if you are experiencing symptoms or are diagnosed with COVID-19.

*COVID case and test result reporting is complex. There is lag time for data reporting due to the time it can take test results to return, coupled with a need for case investigation. To better inform our community, a more complete version of the Drexel COVID-19 Dashboard is currently under construction. The revised dashboard will provide more clarity concerning cumulative cases and test results for select populations.
