As of May 23, 2022, NMC’s COVID-19 response team has decided to pause updates to the cases on campus dashboard for the summer semester, when the on-campus population ebbs significantly.

The spread of COVID-19 on campus has slowed greatly since the winter months. Cases rose 63 percent in January-February (102 to 167), but only 6 percent in March-April (167-178). Over the same time, the prevalence of at-home testing increased significantly. Positive results may not be reported to campus or any health authorities, meaning the dashboard no longer offers an accurate picture of the virus on campus.

As we have since the beginning of the pandemic, we will continue to monitor the state of the virus and adjust procedures as necessary to protect the health and safety of our campus community while minimizing the disruption to learning. We will reassess the value of the dashboard prior to the fall semester.
