COVID-19 Data Dashboard

Data on students and employees in isolation or quarantine represents a snapshot of the numbers on the date and at the time of reporting. Catawba College (“Catawba”) will update this site Monday through Friday.

Isolation” represents the separation and containment of individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and are symptomatic or, if asymptomatic, within the recommended time during which they are infectious. 

Quarantine represents the separation and containment of individuals who have not tested positive for COVID-19, but have suspected or confirmed interaction with an individual that does have COVID-19 OR are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.


* The Student data excludes students who are enrolled in a fully remote curriculum and who are not taking classes on the Catawba campus.   

The data in the above tables does not include students and employees who tested positive during the winter break and whose cases did not affect Catawba’s operational stages.

COVID-19 Case Alerts Protocols 

Catawba is subject to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”) and relies on its guidance regarding communications about confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Catawba community.  

The Clery Act and its implementing regulations require notification to the Catawba community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff occurring on campus. The U.S. Department of Education does not interpret the Clery Act to require institutions to give regular, on-going updates on COVID-19 or to proactively identify positive COVID-19 cases within the campus community. The U.S. Department of Education also does not interpret the statutory language to apply to positive COVID-19 cases among individuals who are not attending classes, working, or residing on campus or to require notifications to such individuals. 

Catawba satisfies the emergency notification requirements of the Clery Act by providing students and employees a single notification through the CatawbaAlert system about COVID-19 and necessary health and safety precautions. Catawba encourages all members of the campus community to obtain information from health care providers, state health authorities, and the CDC’s COVID-19 website. Catawba also created a banner at the top of our homepage linking persons to Catawba’s COVID-19 information. 

Please note these protocols may change. Please continue to check this page for updates.
