Confirmed positive cases

This chart indicates laboratory-confirmed and/or self-reported COVID-19 positive cases reported to the University involving students and employees. Please note: Those who reside or work off campus and have had no contact whatsoever on campus since the start of the fall semester are NOT included in these figures.  This data is intended to provide information regarding positive cases related specifically to the physical campus.    

On-campus figures include students or employees who live or work on campus or who have been on campus during their infectious period and regardless of where they live (e.g. attending an in-person class, practice or event; studying in the library; eating on campus; working out in the SRC).  

Off-campus figures include students or employees who tested positive but do not currently work or reside on campus and who have not been on campus during their infectious period.

*This case involves a Gourmet (dining services employee) who is not a Rider employee. We are including here given the employee's FT work on campus. This case is not counted in any other chart as it involves isolation or quarantine.

This chart launched on Sept. 28 and was revised on Oct. 13 in accordance with NJDOH guidance. Previously, from March through Sept. 27, Rider had been reporting cumulative student and employee cases, including individuals who were working remotely and had not been on campus. During that time, 11 cumulative laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases were recorded (five student cases and six employee cases).

On-campus student testing

This chart includes the number of student tests conducted on campus.  It does not reflect the number of tests that students or employees take off campus.  With regard to the latter, positive test results are recorded in the chart above.  

The Student Health Center tests symptomatic residential students and, where appropriate, residential students who are identified as close contacts of a positive student COVID-19 case.   Commuting students are tested via their primary health care provider or off-campus testing site.

Rider is conducting a surveillance testing program, beginning the week of October 12 and involving student volunteers who live or interact on campus and certain athletics teams.
