K-State launches updated dashboard to provide COVID-19 data in university communities

Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing

Kansas State University has launched an updated online dashboard to track and evaluate COVID-19 data in university-connected communities. The updated dashboard provides information and graphics in an interactive format and will continue to be updated every week.

K-State continues to work to keep our campuses and communities safe by constantly evaluating COVID-19 data and making that data publicly available. The updated dashboard provides campus-related testing data, student quarantine and isolation data, and instructional mode data. 

The new dashboard is a collaborative effort among the Office of Institutional Research, the Division of Communications and Marketing, and the university risk and compliance officer.

K-State continues to encourage all employees to fill out the COVID-19 self-reporting form. Completion of the form is voluntary and anonymous.

Updates on COVID-19 in K-State communities
The newest data will be uploaded on Wednesday, Jan. 27.

The Monday, Jan. 25, update from the Riley County Health Department indicates:

  • 28 new positive cases and 174 additional recoveries since the Friday, Jan. 22, report.
  • 256 active cases in Riley County.
  • 30 deaths in Riley County.
  • Age summary of positive cases in Riley County.
  • Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan is caring for 10 COVID-19 patients at this time. One patient is in intensive care.

Find the latest COVID-19 data on K-State's online dashboard.

K-State is using 10 indicators and additional data to determine if and when changes to the university's operating status are necessary for the health and safety of the community. Data for each topic and indicator is collected and analyzed multiple times per week to provide updated information so leadership can make proactive decisions as quickly as possible.
