Dashboard

About the dashboard

The dashboard below represents the cumulative positive COVID-19 case counts reported within the UCI community—those who are enrolled and/or employed at UCI, or reside in student, family or graduate housing. The recovery counts represent positive cases that have been clinically cleared by a physician.

Footnote as of Oct. 29:

The change in the number of cumulative cases is due to a recent reconciliation of data. Upon analyzing the broad-based testing that has been underway for several weeks, we noticed that the dashboard was reporting some positive cases of students studying remotely. For example, the dashboard was reporting positive cases of students who may live several miles away but uploaded test results into the student portal, or those who tested on-site but live and study at home in another county. The intent of the dashboard is to help our community understand the cases on campus and make decisions about their own health. Therefore, we are updating the dashboard to reflect positive cases among the students who live and study on campus.

Staff and Faculty/Academics are generally tested by private medical professionals.
Nearly all positive cases are on-site workers; those working remotely are not expected to submit cases if they have not been on-site.

In accordance with health privacy laws, we cannot disclose the identity or personal information of those affected. We are in coordination with the Orange County Health Care Agency and connecting with those who may have been exposed through contact. Numbers fluctuate day-by-day due to changes in patient condition(s). Data are gathered daily at one point in time and reflect the date that case submissions are reported.
