COVID-19 Dashboard for Annapolis

Weekly Update for the Annapolis Campus

Updated May 16, 2022

Campus Alert Level

Level Orange: We continue to closely monitor state and county positivity rates and local health conditions.

Operating Impact: We are prepared to respond to changes in local and regional health conditions.

Current Trends: The state and county ended emergency orders and most restrictions on July 1, 2021.

Total Positive Cases: 138 (includes all cases for the spring semester)

Note: Weekly testing is only required for unvaccinated members of our community, but we record positive tests reported to us from outside testing in the "Total Positive Cases" category above. The "Total Positive Cases" category is a cumulative count of all positive test results reported since January 1, 2022; this number only reflects students, faculty, and staff who have returned to Annapolis and/or campus, rather than those who are testing outside of the region and/or state.

The college encourages all eligible members of our community to receive boosters for COVID-19. Students can contact the Harrison Health Center for information on receiving a booster on campus.

What Our Color Levels Mean

Our overall campus alert level above is marked by a color; this ranges from blue, the lowest alert level, to red, the most restrictive alert level. Each level has different reopening and operational considerations and outcomes. See below for a summary of each color’s likely outcomes for operations once we are in session.
