Positivity Rate - Percentage of individuals testing positive out of total test results returned.

Quarantine % Open - Percentage of quarantine beds that are NOT occupied by someone in quarantine.

It is essential to recognize that studying on campus during this pandemic creates an unavoidable risk of exposure to COVID-19. To mitigate risk of contracting the coronavirus, everyone must cooperate and follow public health guidance and related College rules and communications. Honoring them is a condition of Hamilton’s COVID-19 Community Standards; failure to do so may result in disciplinary action.
