Why does the University Administration collect Campus Covid info on a daily basis but only report it once per week to the campus community? Transmission rates of Covid render a once a week reporting frequency impotent as a means for anyone other than the administration to take decisive action. This is an unreasonable and irresponsible assumption of responsibility that needs to be reviewed and overturned. If the administration is getting data, it should be shared with the community in a timely manner.
