This dashboard, updated each evening, includes all test data compiled from surveillance and diagnostic testing of students, faculty and staff conducted at Binghamton University, as well as results of tests administered at other locations and verified by the Broome County Department of Health. Binghamton University uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) formula for calculating its positive test percentage:
Positive test percentage = (the number of positive tests) / (total number of tests) x 100% where the total number of tests is equal to the positive plus the negative test results and excluded indeterminate results.
The surveillance tests conducted at Old Union Hall on campus are antigen tests for all students, faculty and staff who do not have symptoms. The diagnostic tests conducted at Decker Student Health Services Center on campus are PCR tests for students who are experiencing symptoms.
Testing results verified by the Broome County Department of Health include positive tests conducted at NYS testing or other laboratory sites that are reported to Decker Student Health Services by students and verified to be positive through the Broome County Health Department.
