Alert Levels

The University has adopted four alert levels that correspond to the current infection rate, with protective actions.

The active positivity case rate is less than 3%, or active cases are less than 50.

The active positivity rate is more than or equal to 3% and less than 4%, or has active cases greater than or equal to 50, but less than 75.

The active positivity rate is more than or equal to 4% and less than 5%, or has active cases greater than or equal to 75, but less than 100.

The active positivity rate is more than or equal to 5% or has active cases greater than or equal to 100.

What to Expect: Alert level red corresponds to the New York State mandate to shut down in-person instruction for two weeks if there are 100 confirmed positives or 5% of the on-campus student, faculty and staff population.

Testing Calendar:

Faculty and Staff: All members of Adelphi’s faculty and staff who access our campus locations are either fully vaccinated or, if currently unvaccinated, submit COVID-19 PCR tests every other week.

Commuter Students: Effective July 26, 2021 Adelphi policy requires that all students who access our campus locations are vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they have an approved medical or religious exemption. All approved unvaccinated students undergo mandatory testing every other week.

Residential Students: All residential students and staff are tested every other week. Effective July 26, 2021 Adelphi policy requires that all students who access our campus locations are vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they have an approved medical or religious exemption. All approved unvaccinated students undergo mandatory testing every other week.

Testing Notes:

Effective with the Fall 2021 semester, COVID-19 test results are recorded every other week for all unvaccinated members of our faculty, staff or student bodies.

Vaccinated members of our community are not required to undergo testing.

Regular testing of our unvaccinated campus population is not to be confused with testing for cause in (sick individuals). Testing for cause is diagnostic and more likely to occur off campus. As a largely commuter based population, asking community members to remain home when ill, this is the rationale for more self reported positives off campus then via on campus testing.

Description of Adelphi’s Data:

On-Campus Population: The average number of unduplicated people on-campus.

Positive Cases: The total number of confirmed positive cases, whether they came from Adelphi’s testing program or were submitted from independently obtained tests.

Positivity Rate: A calculation based on the current number of positive cases divided by the current on-campus population.
