COVID-19 Tracking

Current Stetson University Tier Level:

TIER 2

Learn More

Stetson University instituted a rigorous testing program as part of its coordinated effort to control the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard the health of students, faculty and staff throughout the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Our protocol calls for frequent testing to identify infected individuals who may be asymptomatic. Stetson University Health Service, working with our partner AdventHealth, quickly isolates contagious individuals and traces others with whom they had contact.

To get tested, visit the COVID-19 Testing page. In addition to Stetson's tier protocols, the Athletics Department has additional phases that must be followed (see page 14 of linked document). For the latest information about Stetson's Spring 2021 semester testing requirments, refer to the COVID-19 Testing page or refer to the COVID-19 Testing section of the DeLand FAQ page for specific guidance.

Dashboard

Data Definitions and Tracing

  • Dashboard counts are aggregated from data entered by those conducting contact tracing. Data are validated weekly to ensure accuracy and minor corrections are made as necessary (e.g., a duplicate record of the same individual’s case, a miscategorization of campus or person type). All data corrections are logged and can be made available, if necessary, through Safer Stetson (saferstetson@stetson.edu). Should a major correction be necessary (e.g., a substantive logic model error aggregating cases incorrectly) a specific correction update will be posted to this website.
  • See a list of definitions for each variable included in the COVID-19 Dashboard.
  • Tracing and follow-up support occurs immediately for all COVID-19 positive cases as well as those who are symptomatic or potentially exposed. Only confirmed (not suspected) cases are reported. All confirmed cases are fully disclosed to the university community as well as all appropriate health authorities.

Isolation Information

Based on the current guidelines from the Department of Health, members of the Stetson community should isolate

  • If they had "close contact" with someone who is COVID-19 positive. Please know that a negative COVID-19 test does NOT remove the need for a 14-day isolation if close contact occurred. Close contact is defined by the CDC as being within 6 feet of someone for 15 minutes or more.
  • For 10 days from the onset of sick symptoms matching our criteria. (See Health Response Protocol)
  • For 10 days from the date of a COVID-19 test if they receive a positive test result.
  • After return from travel to an area that requires isolation by Florida Department of Health guidance.

For more information about what happens when someone is required to isolate, please visit the COVID-19 Testing page or consult the FAQs for the DeLand Campus on the Stetson's Safer Campus website (see Isolation category), and for the College of Law consult its FAQs.

Health Reminders

What should I do if I feel sick? See Stetson’s Health Response Protocol.

What resources are available to me if I test positive? For DeLand, visit the resources at Healthy Hatters. For the College of Law, students, faculty and staff can visit their resources page on Safer Stetson.

Who should I notify if I receive a positive test result from a test provider other than Stetson? Contact Stetson Health Service at 386-822-8150 or email healthservices@stetson.edu.

What happens if someone shows symptoms of COVID and another infection (like Flu)? COVID must be ruled out if someone shows symptoms. They will take a PCR test and isolate until results come back. According to DOH protocol, If someone tests positive for something like the flu, they should still be tested for COVID.

Why is it extra important to get my flu shot this year? COVID and the flu have a lot of symptoms in common. Decreasing your chance of getting the flu help protects you against having to isolate while awaiting COVID results when you actually have the flu. Prevention of Flu also boosts your immune system which protects against getting sicker if you become infected with another virus or bacterial infection. For more information, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
