LHU’s final results for Fall 2020 Semster:

Total Tested* Total Active Positive Active Positivity Rate
Total Positivity Rate
2,320 1 .04% 4.8%

*Total number of tests completed since August 20 are 2087. Total positives (105) and Active (9) and those clinically cleared (96) and 5.0% positivity rate.


Total Tested = (asymptomatic and symptomatic tests performed on LHU students, faculty and staff)
Total Active Positive = Total number of current, active positive cases that have not yet been clinically cleared.
Active Positivity Rate = Active positive cases divided by the total number of tests.
Total Positivity Rate = Reboot date of September 6, 2020 and XXX number of positive tests by total number of tests completed (positive tests)/(total tests) x 100 = Clinical cleared – 10 days passed the date of their first positive

1. For Persons Who Tested Positive but have NOT had COVID-19 Symptoms in Home Isolation:  Time-Based Strategy: Persons with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 who have not had any symptoms and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:

  • At least 10 days have passed since the date of their first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test assuming they have not subsequently developed symptoms since their positive test.
  • If they develop symptoms, then the symptom-based or test-based strategy should be used.

2. Symptom-Based Strategy Persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared; and,
  • At least 24 hours have passed since last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; and, 
  • Symptoms (e.g., fever, dry cough, tiredness, shortness of breath, aches & pains, loss of taste or smell, headache) have improved

Please see further details provided by DOH and directed by Centers of Disease Control (CDC):

DOH & CDC Isolation Guidelines
As recommended by PA Department of Health, Centers of Disease Control and World Health Organization as well as our local Infectious Disease Prevention Medical team -  those who tested positive for COVID-19 should NOT be retested. Experts note that “Since the PCR test is detecting nucleic acid of COVID-19, a positive test after the 10-day isolation is likely detecting nucleic acid of dead virus”
