Roane State launches COVID-19 case reporting dashboard

As part of Roane State’s continued response to the coronavirus pandemic, the college has launched a COVID-19 case reporting dashboard on its website.

The new tool, available at roanestate.edu/COVIDreport, will be updated at least weekly to include active and recovered cases reported through the college’s online portal. The case data will be broken down by campus location.

Cases shown on this dashboard will only include positive cases that have been on a Roane State campus during a period of time when they might have been contagious. Positive reports from students, faculty and staff who are learning or working remotely will not be included on the dashboard unless they have visited a campus.

Please note that the college’s contact tracing protocol remains unchanged. Those who report a positive test result will be advised of their recommended isolation timeline per CDC and health department guidance. Any individual who may have been in close contact with a positive case on campus will be notified directly by an RSCC staff member for possible quarantine.

Roane State will continue to communicate important information to the campus community outside of the case reporting dashboard using email, RaiderAlerts, social media, and news releases to local media outlets. These updates will include campus/building closures, changes in campus access procedures and any other events with significant impacts.

Additionally, Roane State provides a weekly update to the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) regarding COVID-19 cases. The data is accessible by visiting TBR’s website at tbr.edu and clicking on the “Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information” link at the top of the page.

For more information from Roane State, visit the college’s COVID-19 online resource page at roanestate.edu/coronavirus. Specific details about Fall 2020 procedures are posted online at roanestate.edu/reopening. Daily wellness screenings and the COVID-19 self-reporting portal are available at roanestate.edu/checkup.

As a reminder, anyone who comes to campus must wear a face covering, complete a wellness screening and practice physical distancing. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to submit questions or concerns by emailing [email protected].
