Weekly updates to the UNT COVID-19 dashboard paused.
Having shifted into a more controlled phase of the virus, the university is returning to pre-pandemic operations in several areas including no longer maintaining the COVID-19 dashboard.
UNT’s primary goal as our community returns to campus is to help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. UNT is closely monitoring active cases from individuals to determine the impact to our UNT campus community in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible.
Cases of COVID-19 reported through the UNT dashboard are assigned to the week they occurred, no matter when the positive test result was received. For example, if 100 cases were reported on a Thursday, but only 50 are from the current week, those 50 will be assigned to the latest report while the other 50 will be placed in the week(s) when the test result was confirmed. UNT often receives a positive test result weeks after it was determined, but we still add the information to the historical database. Cases are removed after five days, unless the individual is still reporting symptoms.
Updated (Friday, April 29)
Cases will be updated on this site no later than 12 p.m. CT each Friday.
