This dashboard aims to provide the Trinity community with up-to-date information about the presence of COVID-19 on campus and our efforts to mitigate its spread, as well as conditions locally and statewide. It provides the current alert level status and the main operational details that accompany it (for more information, please visit the alert levels page). In addition to key data about the number of currently active cases among our community and the number of students in isolation or quarantine, the dashboard provides cumulative data on our campus testing program (beginning anew on January 1, 2021). The current case counts and operating status will be updated each business day (Monday through Friday) and whenever the college’s alert level changes.

For technical details and definitions of terminology, read more about the data below.

About the Data

The data on this page are aggregated from a variety of sources and are subject to updates and revision.


  • Currently Active Cases – the count of individuals who have recently tested positive (via Trinity’s testing program or elsewhere) and are in isolation per CDC guidelines at the time of reporting. Individuals who were diagnosed with COVID-19 may continue to test positive again within three months of the initial infection. Unless these individuals remain in isolation, they are not included in this count.
  • In isolation – the current count of students who are currently residing in one of the college’s isolation rooms.
  • In quarantine – the current count of students who may have been exposed to an active COVID-19 case and are following the quarantine protocol.
  • Tests Processed – the number of tests collected at the Trinity Testing Center and processed by the Broad Institute laboratory. Members of our community will be tested many times throughout the semester, so these counts are not headcounts. In addition, some individuals may be retested, so multiple positive test counts might not indicate multiple new cases.
  • Prior Positive – test results of individuals who previously tested positive for COVID-19 and received another positive test result less than 90 days from the first. In some cases, their original positive test was before their arrival on campus and they were never active cases on campus.
  • Invalid – the count of tests that could not be processed for a variety of reasons or failed to produce a valid result.
  • Inconclusive – the count of tests in which only one of the two viral probes signaled detection of the virus.
