Miami University’s COVID-19 dashboard listed an estimated 36 active student cases and three active employee cases as of April 15.

The seven-day moving average new positive cases is 1.9 per day, and the university conducted 2,098 student tests and 343 employee tests between April 7 and April 13.

Four residence halls are listed at a Level 2 advisory level, meaning those halls have had one or two positive cases in the last seven days. All other halls are listed at a Level 1 advisory, which means no students have tested positive in the last week.

No halls are at a Level 3 or Level 4 advisory level. Level 3 indicates that at least one floor of a residence hall has had three or more cases in the last seven days, while Level 4 means at least 5% of the floor has tested positive in the last week with statistical evidence of a cluster.

Since August, Miami has conducted 87,776 tests. A total of 3,290 students and 112 employees have tested positive in that time.

As of April 15, six students are in isolation and none are in quarantine.
