Editor’s Note: These graphics will be updated Monday-Friday around 12 p.m. with the new numbers the University of Indianapolis releases on its COVID-19 dashboard.
New positive tests are only recorded once on the day in which they are reported to the university. For example, a new positive test that is reported on Aug. 31 will only appear for that day and will not appear as one of the positive tests on Sept. 1.
New instances of quarantine are only recorded on the day in which they are reported to the university. For example, a new instance of quarantine or self-isolation reported on Aug. 31 will only appear for that day and will not appear as one of the instances on Sept. 1.
The total number of individuals who have had to go into quarantine is determined by adding the number of quarantine or self-isolation reports from each day together.
