COVID-19 Regional Statistics

cq-text-component-placeholder
Regional numbers are the best way to convey the level of COVID-19 cases we would encounter as students, staff, and faculty on campus. Because we are not a residential campus, our borders are permeable and we reflect the surrounding community. In addition, the number of cases among the NKU community does not distinguish among those who come to campus regularly, come to campus rarely, or never come to campus, and so would not be informative regarding personal levels of risk. We are providing data from the areas that cover approximately 70% of the NKU community; the remainder of our regional community is primarily spread out around across 11 counties across Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky.

Rate of
Transmission


Sources:

  • Rt Live: Rt refers to the “effective reproduction number” of COVID-19. It is measure of how rapidly the disease is spreading in a community. An Rt of 1 means that, on average, each infected person spreads the disease to one other person.  An Rt of above 1 will quickly lead to a large number of cases; it indicates a trend towards exponential growth. An Rt of less than 1 will trend towards the end of an outbreak.

NKU Reported
Positive Cases


Sources:

  • Northern Kentucky University maintains these data to educate the campus and community about the number of positive COVID-19 cases among students and employees. Cases reported to NKU by all confirmed members of the NKU community are included, excepting high school students enrolled in NKU courses (their numbers are maintained by their respective school districts). If positive results are not self-reported by the affected student or employee, the University will not record that information on the dashboard. Numbers less than 5 are suppressed according to state data release policies. Confidentiality laws prohibit the University from disclosing identifying information about affected individuals.

    Members of the campus community who receive a positive test result from any testing agency should report it on the Self-reporting Positive Test Form.
