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
