UMBC Public Health Dashboard


UMBC’s Spring 2021 Dashboard

This dashboard provides timely data about the prevalence of COVID-19 within our main campus, with a focus on our faculty, staff, and students who are approved to live, work, or study on the physical campus. All community members approved to be on campus must complete COVID-19 testing, daily symptom tracking, and health and safety training requirements.

Testing data includes (1) the number of on-campus tests conducted, (2) any positive results from on-campus testing and (3) positive results of off-campus tests reported to us by community members. Every positive case has received direct follow-up. All cumulative data is effective January 1, 2021 and does not include Fall 2020 data.
