Spring 2021: COVID-19 Reporting

Updated January 20, 2021

Baldwin Wallace reports 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.

Pre-Arrival Testing

 

Student Pre-Arrival Total Cases

75

Number of confirmed positive test result conducted by BW prior to arrival on campus. Students who received a positive result during pre-arrival testing completed a 10-day isolation period at home before arriving campus.

 

Tests Administered

BBW collects results from both on-campus testing and positive results shared with BW by students or employees who were tested off campus. BW required all returning students to complete a pre-arrival COVID-19 test prior to the start of classes on January 19 and continues to provide daily testing of symptomatic students in addition to weekly surveillance testing of a sampling of students and employees to measure the general health of the campus. Weekly surveillance testing includes randomly selected students, faculty and staff with the goal of testing 20% of the BW population each week as recommended by the State of Ohio. (approx. 800 surveillance tests per week). Over the course of the semester BW will have performed more than 8,000 COVID-19 tests in addition to collecting results from off-campus test results provided by students and employees.
