DAYTON — The University of Dayton is reporting more than half the active coronavirus cases that were reported last Monday are now recovered.

Since Aug. 10, UD has reported 1,121 cases at the university’s campus. Last Monday, 771 of those cases were still considered active with students in isolation, data shows. Over the weekend, active cases at the school dropped to 339.

Cases at the university include students who have been working, living, studying or otherwise on campus during their contagious period.

Last week, Montgomery County moved to the second highest county for the highest occurrence of COVID-19 in the state, which coincided with the spike in cases at UD. It was the first time since the state began releasing that data that Montgomery County was included in the list.

UD remains at a “Level 4″ campus status, which is separate from the state’s county system. The “Level 4″ is the second highest alert level for UD, meaning contact tracing cannot reliably identify all affected parties or spaces and contain the spread of the virus campuswide, according to the university.

The campus has extended remote learning until at least Sept. 14.
