COVID-19 Testing Data

Fordham University COVID-19 Dashboard

Positive COVID-19 test results are reported to the New York City Department of Health (DoH), regardless of whether the tests were performed on campus or by an outside health care provider. The DoH, in turn, reports all positive tests to the University, and those are reflected below.

Visit Fordham Forward for the latest information.

Other dashboard notes:

  • The number of cases indicated on each campus is a sum reported over the two weeks prior. 
  • The infection rate reflects the average percentage over the 14-day period. 

As of Feb. 19, 2021, New York state’s criteria for pausing in-person instruction and activities is as follows: if 5% or greater of the on-campus population, or 100 people—whichever is higher— tests positive within the most recent 14 days, provided that at least 25 percent of the on-campus population is tested each week. In the event one campus reaches that threshold, on-campus instruction and other face-to-face activities would be suspended only on that campus, but students in University housing on the affected campus would not be sent home.

New York state also maintains a COVID-19 Tracker. Data displayed there may differ from Fordham's COVID-19 dashboard due to differences in the data collection and timing of the reporting requirements, but the underlying data Fordham shares with the state is accurate and identical to that shared on the Fordham dashboard.
