Current Status of Indicators

Updated August 10, 2022

"Mini-VAT" (mini-Virus Action Team, which replaced the larger VAT at the beginning of May, 2022) monitors key campus and regional health metrics ("indicators") to detect changes in transmission of COVID-19 and in the capacity of the health infrastructure and the university in general.  A comprehensive view of the indicators, together with guidance from the state and local government, determines the University posture ("alert level"), which provides guidelines for University operations.

The current status of our indicators can be found below. More details about indicators and alert levels can be found at the alert level information page.
