UMBC Public Health Dashboard

This dashboard provides timely data about the prevalence of COVID-19 within our main campus, based on UMBC’s on-campus testing and reported results from off-campus testing among UMBC faculty, staff, and students who are approved to be on campus this fall. All community members approved to be on campus must complete COVID-19 testing, daily symptom tracking, and health and safety training requirements. Every positive case has received appropriate follow-up. Learn more through UMBC’s Health & Safety page.

UMBC is conducting weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing of select on-campus populations. Data reflecting the results of surveillance testing are provided as available.
