LLS COVID-19 Dashboard

Campus Status: Open to Authorized LLS Students, Staff and Faculty

  • L.A. County Public Health defines a cluster as 3 or more epidemiologically linked cases reported within a 14-day period in the higher education setting. As such, these cluster numbers reflect the cluster count when at least one of the cases was on campus or involved in an off-campus university activity while they were infectious.

    Date Clusters
    10/31/23 1
    5/7/22 1
    12/18/21 0*
    12/17/21 1


    *The university has received information that the cases originally reported on this date do not meet the definition of the cluster, and so the count has been changed from 1 to 0. 

    • The LLS COVID Dashboard reflects LLS-specific data. Information for LMU's Westchester and Playa Vista campuses is available on the LMU COVID Dashboard.
    • For the latest Los Angeles County figures, please visit the county's COVID-19 Surveillance Dashboard.
    • The university records lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases for individuals who have been on the LLS campus or participated in an approved LLS activity during their infectious period. Isolation and/or quarantine is counted and tracked for LLS students, employees, contract employees and visitors who have ongoing access to campus.
    • Isolation is required for individuals who are lab-confirmed COVID-positive, or are suspected to have COVID-19 due to the presence of symptoms and are awaiting test results. If they test negative, they will not be considered a COVID-19 lab-confirmed case but must continue to isolate until they are fever-free for the prescribed hours and have experienced an improvement in symptoms. Home isolation guidelines.
    • Quarantine is required for individuals who have had close contact with a lab confirmed COVID-19 case or an individual suspected to have COVID-19 who is awaiting test results. An individual may move from quarantine to isolation if they develop symptoms and are suspected to have COVID-19 or receive a lab confirmed positive result to a COVID test. Home quarantine guidelines.
    • These data do not include members of the LLS community who are in modified quarantine, which applies to students who are fully vaccinated in Vax LMU and learn they were exposed to a positive case within the last 10 days. These students must get tested 3-5 days after exposure, during which time they may attend class and related academic activities while fully masked. To return to normal activities, they must receive a negative test taken 3-5 days after exposure OR complete 10 days of modified quarantine, whichever comes first.
    • Confirmed cases counts individuals who have had a lab-confirmed positive result to a COVID test. 
    • Multiple cases, even if simultaneous, do not always constitute a cluster or an outbreak. A cluster or an outbreak is defined by the L.A. County Department of Public Health as three (3) or more epidemiologically linked cases within a 14-day period. Epidemiologically linked cases include persons with identifiable connections to each other such as sharing a physical space (e.g. in a classroom, office or gathering), indicating a higher likelihood of linked spread of disease in that setting rather than sporadic transmission from the broader community.
    • Los Angeles County data is provided by and updated by Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management from the SDE data source through automated scripting. L.A. County runs the script daily at 4 pm and finishes around 4:15 pm.
