8.31.20: COVID-19 Dashboard & Reporting updated

Lehigh University is taking measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 on campus and in the surrounding Bethlehem community. The data included in this dashboard are updated weekly on Mondays by 9:30 a.m.

Lehigh COVID-19 Dashboard has been established and will be updated with new case information weekly during the fall semester.

For privacy reasons, we will not release personally identifiable information for those who test positive for COVID-19. However, contact tracing will be initiated immediately and anyone who has been in close contact with someone who tested positive will be contacted. For purposes of contact tracing, close contact is defined as having been within six feet of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time (longer than 15 minutes). 

For the health and safety of our community, it is essential that any Lehigh student who is living on or near campus in the surrounding community who has been tested for COVID-19 or who has a positive test for COVID-19 must notify the HWC immediately (610-758-3870). We cannot emphasize this strongly enough.

Important Reminders:

As a campus community, together we must take proactive measures to reduce the potential for community spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our communities. This requires all of us to take responsibility for mitigating risk through behaviors that we know promote our health, wellness and safety.
