Variables Used to Evaluate the Alert Level

Internal, on campus variables that influence alert level:

  • Severity of cases among population; this will be measured against our isolation housing capacity 
  • Significant increases in overall positivity rate as identified through pool testing / surveillance monitoring; this will be measured as  > 5% community infection of student population positive tests (COVID-19 test and weekly surveillance monitoring results)
  • Depletion of suitable PPE and inability to procure replacement supplies

External, regional variables that influence alert level:

  • Issuance of an order to close from NYS / SUNY; this is measured by region with specific metrics for hospital bed availability and infection rate
  • Reduced regional health care service availability/bed space in our own local hospitals in Hornell or Wellsville
  • Significant increases in confirmed positive test results at Alfred University or in the Alfred village/town community surrounding the campus

Federal Clery Act Reporting

According to guidance from SUNY, COVID-19 qualifies as a “serious illness” for Emergency Notifications of communicable diseases that may impact the health and safety of students and employees under the Federal Clery Act when certain standards are met. A few items of note:

  • In addition to posting the information on this website, any positive test results will be shared in an Emergency Notification through an active format such as email or text.
  • The Emergency Notification only applies to on campus impacts. It does not apply to other Clery Act geography such as Public Property and Non-Campus Property or incidents occurring in the community around the campus.
