Potential campus status changes

There is no definitive number of positive cases that would lead to a change in campus operations. However, several indicators are monitored and evaluated closely, including the number of positive cases and the availability of tests and personal protective equipment (PPE). These factors play a critical role in evaluating the status for each campus.

Kent State is prepared for all situations, including the possibility that we must adjust our mix of in-person and remote courses (meaning that some courses currently taught in person may move to remote delivery, while courses that cannot be delivered remotely continue to be delivered in person) or once again convert to all remote instruction, whether it be for a few weeks or a longer duration.

Testing Strategy

As part of our ongoing COVID-19 mitigation strategy, Kent State has expanded the testing for members of our university community. Testing is being conducted for those who have symptoms and those who do not show symptoms (asymptomatic). This testing does not require previous authorization from a physician. Widespread testing is the best way to identify asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 who are unknowingly spreading the virus and putting the health of others at risk.

It is important to understand that the more testing that takes place, the more cases of COVID-19 we will discover.

We are prepared for this expected increase in cases and believe that knowing who has COVID-19 is the best way to stop the spread of this virus by acting to isolate those who test positive and to quarantine their close contacts.
