We’re pleased to announce that MassArt’s COVID-19 Campus Dashboard is now live, displaying key metrics on the health and safety measures we’re taking to protect our college community. The MassArt metrics displayed in the dashboard, along with comparative metrics from Boston and Massachusetts, will be updated every Wednesday to reflect data from the previous week.

Data

  • A total of 2 5 people received positive test results from campus testing. Contact tracing has been completed and these individuals are being supported through their isolation period 

  • We have had 5 people clear isolation since last week's update 

  • A total of 2 12 people self-have been identified as close contacts from off-campus exposures and are now being supported through their quarantine period

  • Since we started testing in August, we have conducted a total of 1314,333439 COVID tests, and we have had 42 47 community members who have received positive test results

Memos

  • Despite our limited January testing hours, students who are experiencing symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID will be able access testing if they reach out to our team by emailing covid@massart.edu or call/texting 401.281.9332. Tests conducted on days other than when we provide regular testing will be included in the dashboard

  • A note about positivity rate: we are conducting fewer tests due to the limited number of people on campus & Monday holiday which skews the positive test rate due the low number of overall tests

  • We will be waiting until after the add/drop to update the De-Densification metrics on the dashboard- this update will happen on February 10, 2021

Reach out by email or phone 401.281.9332 to our COVID Team if you learn you were in close contact with someone who now has COVID or are experiencing symptoms.
