Furman University is continually monitoring health conditions on campus to determine what steps are necessary to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and address the risks and uncertainties related to the virus. This dashboard will be updated on January 18, upon our students’ return to campus, and in consultation with the COVID Planning Steering Committee and Prisma Health, pulling data from multiple sources to track various metrics that will help inform our decision-making related to campus operations.
