Dakota State University is committed to sharing real-time data indicating the number of known cases of COVID-19 for students, faculty and staff. These data will be updated as frequently as possible. It is important to emphasize that because some out-of-town students may initially be recorded using their permanent residences, DSU’s data may not always align with the number of cases reported on the South Dakota Department of Health (DOH) website. Accurate documentation on the DOH website may take a few days.

In addition, the South Dakota Department of Health will post weekly, aggregated COVID-positive information for higher education and K-12. This DOH information will be updated, based on DOH positive case reports, every Monday by noon.

The four categories of self-reported data include:

  • Total number of current (active) self-reported DSU faculty, staff and student positive COVID-19 cases
    • Total number of current (active) self-reported DSU faculty/staff positive COVID-19 cases
    • Total number of current (active) self-reported DSU student positive COVID-19 cases
  • Total number of currently quarantined and isolated DSU faculty, staff and students (this includes students who may live off-campus or who have returned home to their permanent residences)

For clarification, isolation separates sick people from those who are not sick. Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
