COVID-19 Dashboard

Together, We Are Staying Informed

Updated: 5:00 P.M. January 21, 2021

Please be aware there are cases of coronavirus among the UB community. This dashboard is updated regularly and serves as UB’s primary method for communicating positive cases. UB’s COVID-19 dashboard has been updated to reflect clarification from New York State regarding the positive case threshold for the mandatory temporary suspension of in-person learning.

NY Higher Education Threshold

On-Campus Positive Cases
Jan. 16 - Jan. 29

12 / 100

The New York State threshold for transitioning to fully-remote learning is 100 positive tests in a set, two-week period. At the end of the two week period, the count of positive cases toward the 100-case threshold will reset to zero, per state mandate.  More information regarding this can be found in a Sept. 14 clarification memorandum from SUNY.

In order to make critical decisions regarding UB’s operational and academic status, UB collects data on a daily basis for known, on and off-campus, positive coronavirus cases. UB uses the data to monitor the prevalence of the virus among the university community. On Aug. 31, UB began reporting these cases on a rolling 14-day period (the period of time identified by the CDC in which an individual is typically infected with the virus.)  UB will continue reporting data on a rolling, 14-day basis, in addition to reporting data for set, two week reporting periods, mandated by New York State.
