LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Liberty University missed a self-imposed deadline to publish coronavirus figures on its website.
The News & Advance reported that the university promised by Tuesday to launch a data dashboard, a popular digital tool used by large colleges and universities to disclose the number of COVID-19 case among its students and employees to the public.
A Liberty spokesman told the newspaper the dashboard was delayed by a “technical glitch.”
The dashboard, which launched Wednesday, showed 141 active coronavirus cases among the university's students and employees.
Since in-person classes began late last month, Liberty has declined to release daily COVID-19 figures as other institutions of higher learning have.
Instead, the university has provided two updates to the media about positive cases.
