On May 2, the Minnesota Department of Health issued updated guidance for campus transmission levels at institutions of higher education. The new guidance uses the institution’s ability to respond to cases and the available space for on-campus student isolation to determine the campus level (low, medium or high). The CDC’s community levels data continue to be the key regional metrics. Augsburg’s COVID-19 dashboard report and key metrics table were updated on May 7 to reflect this updated guidance.
Below are the key metrics used to assess campus transmission levels as of May 7, 2022.
|Level||Case response capacity||% of isolation beds full||7-day case rate per 100,000||7-day COVID-19 admissions per 100,000||% of inpatient COVID-19 beds over 7 days|
|Low||Manageable||Less than half full||< 200||< 10.0||< 10.0%|
|Medium||At capacity||More than half full||< 200
|10 – 19.9
|10.0% – 14.9%
|High||Over capacity||Completely full||200+
