Howard College COVID-19 Dashboard

Howard College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for students, staff, and faculty. As part of our established processes, students, faculty, and staff are asked to self-report exposures to a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 case and/or their own lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 tests. When self-reports are made, the designated Howard College officials will follow approved guidelines by making reports and beginning contact tracing as needed.

Students who are online only and have not been present on campus are not included in the campus data. Howard College does not provide campus-based testing and relies totally upon self-reporting processes for faculty, staff, and students as outlined in the Open Howard College document. Privacy is a priority and names are not shared throughout the notification process.

The table below is updated weekly by 3:00 pm CST each Friday with numbers from the previous seven days, reporting by campus. Numbers are reported cumulatively beginning June 5, 2020, through the current date reported.
