COVID-19 Dashboard

 Last Updated: May 16, 2022

We are providing information on the vaccination status and positive COVID-19 cases on campus in order to keep our Santa Clara community appropriately informed.

Vaccinations

Verified vaccination data as of April, 11, 2021

Reporting for nearly 10,000 community members (undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff members). Find more information on mandatory testing for all resident undergraduates at Testing Protocol

Reported Positive Cases

Cases below include Color PCR tests, rapid antigen tests, and external tests reported to the COVID Operations team from students, faculty, and staff. 

Note: With the recent policy changes that eliminated the required surveillance testing, and the shift towards rapid antigen tests, the COVID Operations team is unable to acquire an accurate number of tests taken in a given week. Therefore, we are unable to calculate an accurate positivity rate. As such, starting in Spring Quarter, we will share the number of reported positive cases from week to week, so the community can see changes in case numbers as accurately as we can provide.

Per the applicable notification requirements, faculty, staff or students will be notified of exposure via the SCU COVID-Dashboard, which lists the building and exposure date. 

If you are an SCU student, staff or faculty member and you tests positive outside of SCU's testing program, please report your positive test result.

COVID-19 Related Benefits and Protections

SCU Human Resources will answer any employee questions about Personnel related leaves, programs, and needs. Additionally, there are employer and government-sponsored. If you are unable to work, you may be entitled to receive supplemental paid sick leave to cover the time you are required to quarantine, isolate, or seek a COVID-19 diagnosis. Please contact Indu Ahluwalia for more information on these benefits.  Retaliation or discrimination against an employee who requests paid sick days or uses paid sick days is prohibited.  scu.edu/covid-19-hr-resource

Contact Tracing and Disinfecting Protocol

Due to the high vaccination rates within our community, SCU does not conduct contract tracking internally. Close contacts will be notified by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, if identified as a cluster of positive cases. Vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine, if identified as a close contact. Those individuals should monitor for symptoms. If symptoms do present, individuals must stay home, get tested, and may return to campus if they have tested negative and once symptoms have subsided. 

SCU Facilities implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols (using EPA approved products for COVID-19) when the pandemic began and will continue to do so for its duration. Worksites in which a confirmed case has been identified are deep cleaned and disinfected.

Privacy Reminder

Santa Clara University strives at all times to respect the privacy and medical confidentiality of our community members who have tested positive for COVID-19. While it is understandable to be concerned and seek details about possible exposure from peers or colleagues who are infected, it is important to remember:

  • Confirmed cases do not always indicate active infections. Many individuals who have tested positive have already recovered or are in the process of recovering.
  • The public health department in a person’s county of residence determines who, if anyone, must be contacted regarding potential exposure to COVID-19, based on current guidelines. For Santa Clara County, guidelines can be found on the Santa Clara County Public Health website. 
  • The most important factors in preventing the spread of COVID-19 continue to be social distancing; strictly following good health practices such as frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer; wearing masks when engaging in essential activities outside the home; and following all guidance from U.S. and local health authorities. 
  • Those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19—such as a fever over 100.4 degrees, coughing or trouble breathing—should contact their local provider, or, if residing on campus, contact the Cowell Health Center.
