COVID-19 Dashboard

This page will be updated with confirmed cases once a week on Tuesdays.

Johnson C. Smith University’s COVID-19 case numbers reported below are updated each week based on data collected by campus officials.

All faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to report any positive test results by calling 704.371.6519 and leaving a message. You may also email to let the university know about any positive test results. 

Maudré Addison, director of employee services, is responsible for getting back with employees about their next steps and Marian Jones, director of health services, works with students on the quarantine and isolation processes.

The data displayed in this dashboard is based on information provided to the University through self-reporting and weekly surveillance testing conducted by the University.

University officials may not be aware of all positive test results of its students or employees, particularly if the test was not administered on campus.

The dashboard will be updated weekly.

In order to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Johnson C. Smith University will not and cannot identify individual students or employees who have been diagnosed with COVID-19. 

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please contact 704.371.6519 or email immediately.

To minimize the potential exposure of others, it is very important that you do not return to campus.  If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, a doctor’s note is required to return to work. 

Please consult the Faculty and Staff Guide for Returning to Campus for more information if you are an employee or the Student Guide for Returning to Campus if you are a student for more information.

How we can protect each other

All students, faculty and staff are required to complete a web based self-screening using an application called SensorRx, before attending class or entering campus buildings. This screening must be done on a daily basis. The virtual self-screening application relays data to a cloud-based management system that is both Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant. The screening tool asks several questions related to a person’s general health and provides a green, yellow or red risk level. The app also provides “next steps” for every level of risk.

After completing the screening, persons proceed to a GoSafe One Screen checkpoint to have their temperature checked. If you do not complete the screening using the app before leaving your residence hall or before arriving on campus (faculty, staff and non-residential students), you must visit one of the temperature checkpoints to complete the screening online before having your temperature checked.

After your temperature has been checked, you will receive a wristband that allows you to have access to campus and campus facilities for that day. You will receive a new wristband daily after passing the screening and temperature check. The color of the wristband changes daily. If your temperature is above 99.4 degrees, you will be referred to the Health Center for additional instructions. 

Although inconvenient, we have added this important screening step to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on campus. Following are the checkpoint locations and times of operation.

Temperature Check Location

Hours of Operation

New Residence Hall (students only)

Mondays - Sundays: 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

James B. Duke Memorial Library

Jack S. Brayboy Gymnasium

Mondays - Fridays: 6:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Students, faculty, staff and vendors who arrive on campus after the checkpoints are closed complete the screening process and receive a wristband at the security booth located at the campus entrance.

Always allow enough time to complete the daily screening/temperature check and receive your wristband prior to going to class. Anyone who arrives to class or is on campus without wearing the correct wristband on each day will be directed to a checkpoint to complete the process.
