Fall 2020: COVID-19 Reporting

Updated October 26, 2020

Baldwin Wallace will report the number of BW campus community members who are or recently have been on campus who have either tested positive for COVID-19 or have recovered following a positive diagnosis. Current case data, to be updated every seven days, may be drawn from a variety of sources, including the Cuyahoga County Health Department, and not limited to on-campus test results.

The BW Be Safe plan includes detailed protocols to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 including ongoing random "surveillance" testing. The privacy of individual students and employees will be maintained while BW transparently shares campus trends.
