Stetson University instituted a rigorous testing program in fall of 2020 as part of its coordinated effort to control the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard the health of students, faculty and staff. 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.
The COVID-19 Tracking Dashboard aggregates testing and vaccination data from DeLand campus, College of Law and off-campus/virtual sources providing context using a visual representation to help you interpret the data accurately.
Data Definitions and Tracing
- COVID-19 tracking 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, by contacting Safer Stetson. 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.
- Vaccination counts percentages based on self-reported vaccinations, verified by Stetson Health Service, and only include those who have completed the vaccination (one dose of a one-dose shot or both doses of a two-shot series), including incoming deposited DeLand students. This data is updated daily at 4 p.m. All members of the Stetson community are encouraged to voluntarily report their vaccination status online. The university has set the community goal at 70% vaccination rate. For more information about vaccinations, please refer to the COVID-19 Vaccination webpage. Please note that this information will be kept private and confidential.
- See a list of definitions for each variable included in the COVID-19 Tracking webpage.
- Tracing and follow-up support occurs immediately for all COVID-19 positive cases, including those who are symptomatic, asymptomatic 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.
To get tested, visit the COVID-19 Testing webpage. In addition to Stetson's tier protocols, the Athletics Department has NCAA-mandated phases that must also be followed (see page 14 of linked document). For the latest information about Stetson's Spring 2022 semester testing requirements, refer to the COVID-19 Testing page or consult the COVID-19 Testing section of the DeLand FAQ page for specific guidance.
in Jan. 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revised their COVID-19 isolation and quarantine guidelines. According to the CDC, “the change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after." Isolation for COVID-19 positive individuals has been reduced in most cases. For more information about Stetson University's isolation protocols based on the current guidelines from the Department of Health, visit Safer Stetson's Isolation webpage.
*Note: You must be 24 hours fever and major respiratory symptom free to end isolation.
