Keene State is implementing its plan to monitor for, and rapidly manage, cases of COVID-19 that are found among the college community. This year, Keene State will be relying on the risk matrix for operational conditions and potential changes. The data metrics reflect the most appropriate means of collecting the more limited amount of data now that COVID-19 is headed toward an endemic phase. There will be no surveillance testing dashboard during this academic year as surveillance testing will not be part of Keene State’s risk mitigation and management processes.
Criteria are weighted based on the significance of the impact. This assessment provides a data-driven determination about whether the college’s operations should continue in-person, or change in some way, such as shifting to remote operations for teaching and college-related activities.
Decisions about campus operations are made using several criteria (referenced above on this page), called “trigger points”. The trigger point matrix in this section is updated on a weekly basis, when data are available from City partners and other key resources. These criteria are monitored daily, and are used to make changes immediately, if needed.
