Health & Safety Notices

Cases posted reflect results from individuals who have been working, living, studying or otherwise on campus. Hood will not disclose any identifying information, and we ask that you respect their privacy, even if you believe you know who they are.

As a community, we must do everything we can to support these individuals and one another through this incredibly difficult time. The metrics are updated each Monday by close of business.

Total Confirmed Cases7-Day Positivity Rate

On-campus is defined as an employee working on campus or students living and/or taking in-person classes. Individuals telecommuting or taking lasses remotely are not included in these numbers. A confirmed case is defined as a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. As per our protocol, the Frederick County Health Department is notified of every positive case. 

Contact Tracing Efforts

Members of the Hood community have completed the contact tracing certification from Johns Hopkins University and are prepared to begin informal contact tracing ahead of the state health department to mitigate the spread of the virus on campus. If you have not been notified, then you are not deemed to have increased risk because of exposure to these individuals.
