Data Definitions 

Tests 
Lawrence administered COVID-19 surveillance tests to asymptomatic Lawrence community members, including Bon Appétit employees. Testing groups were determined by campus and community epidemiological data at that time. Symptomatic testing of students was conducted in the Wellness Center as needed.

Following NCAA guidelines, unvaccinated student athletes who practiced or competed participated in increased testing. These test results were also included in the on-campus testing numbers.

Case 
A case indicates the person has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus (not the antibody) through on-campus or off-campus testing. Individuals who have been diagnosed by a health care provider based on symptoms are also considered a case. A new case indicates a new diagnosis since the last dashboard update.  
 
Active Case 
Active Cases reflect students or employees currently in isolation who has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus (not the antibody) through on-campus or off-campus testing. Individuals who have been diagnosed by a health care provider based on symptoms are also considered a case.
