Weekly Briefing, May 6, 2021

The seven-day positivity rate is 0.1% for both employees and students. Since April 29, 18 university members have tested positive out of more than 17,000 tests; 52 tested positive the week before.

COVID-19 vaccines are now readily available on campus at the Nicholas Recreation Center, including to families of employees and students and the general public (age 16 and older). Make an appointment now. Appointments are preferred but not required, though since only Pfizer is available to 16 and 17-year-olds, UHS recommends this age group make appointments to ensure availability.

As of this week, 13,551 employees (70%) have at least one dose of vaccine and 13,079 (68%) are fully vaccinated. At least 21,825 students (48%) have at least one dose and 17,659 (39%) are fully vaccinated. As the student population changes during the summer, the number of students who are vaccinated may fluctuate.

Already vaccinated? Make sure to let UHS know by uploading your vaccine record. This helps inform campus for future planning and also ensures you a green Badger Badge without the need to test.

Starting May 10, a green Badger Badge will no longer be required to access most campus spaces. However, we expect all students and staff to maintain a green badge, as certain spaces and events may require one. Free testing will remain available at three sites on campus. But the easiest way to maintain a green badge is to get vaccinated. A green badge is required for students attending commencement on May 8.

Although we have seen significant progress in vaccination and stable or decreasing case and hospitalization numbers in Dane County, it remains critical that all members of our community — including those who are fully vaccinated — consistently follow public health requirements: test regularly; wear a two-layer (or greater), well-fitting face covering; avoid gatherings; and clean hands frequently. A combination of high vaccination rates and public health best practices is the best way to significantly reduce cases and resume more normal activities.

Campus policies requiring wearing masks indoors, as well as outdoors except when exercising and maintaining six feet from others, remain in effect.

COVID-19 Testing Data

The first two charts in this section present detailed data about our on-campus testing program, administered by University Health Services. The third chart and summary section include off-campus testing data provided by Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC).

Daily Cases and Percent Positivity 7-Day Average

For testing performed on-campus

Chart summary: This bar chart begins on January 1, 2021. Daily new cases generally remained below 40 through January, increasing up to about 60 a day the first half of Feburary and, on February 16, jumping to more than 100 a day. By the end of February, daily cases dropped below 60. By early March. daily cases were on average less than 10. A majority of cases are reported in students. The percent positivity dropped beneath 0.5% by late January due to an increase in tests. In students it had crept up to 1% as of mid February, but back around 0.5% by the end of February. By mid-March, it was down to 0.1% for both employees and students.

Total Cases and Percent Positivity 7-Day Average

Total Tests by Day

For testing performed on-campus

Chart summary: This bar chart begins on January 1, 2021. Daily tests began increasing later in January with some days topping 5,000 tests. On February 23, tests peaked at 10,195 and remain in a range of about 5,000 to 10,000 tests daily, dropping off some on weekends.

Daily Cases, On- and Off-campus Testing, Combined

The chart below shows combined positive test results from on- and off-campus testing. Off-campus testing data is shared with us by Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC). PHMDC collects information on UW affiliation only for individuals who test positive. Therefore, the total number of tests and the percentage of tests that are positive for university employees and students tested off campus are not available.

Chart summary: This bar chart begins on January 1, 2021. Combined daily cases from on- and off-campus testing remained generally below 40 through the end of January with more cases coming from on-campus testing. By early Feburary, daily cases were topping 60 on some days, before decreasing to less than 30 from Feburary 10 to 15. Starting Feburary 16, cases jumped noticeably to more than 100 cases. By the end of February, daily cases had dropped below 60. By mid-March, cases were generally less than 10 a day.

Campus COVID-19 info

The university has adopted new measures to enhance the safety of the campus community during the spring semester. These measures increase the scope and frequency of testing and are linked to access to campus. Proof of recent negative test results is needed in order to access campus facilities and services.

About the Data

  • This dashboard features data from testing performed on and off campus of current students and employees. Public Health Madison & Dane County collects information on UW affiliation only for individuals who test positive. Therefore, the total number of tests and the percentage of tests that are positive for university employees and students tested off campus are not available.
  • Positive test counts reported by UW–Madison and PHMDC may initially differ due to differences in the timing of reporting and the need to determine UW affiliation for those tested off campus.
  • The dashboard is updated by 2 p.m., weekdays
  • Data from a previous day may change if additional information becomes available.
  • “Students” includes all currently enrolled students: undergraduate, graduate/professional and special students.
  • “Employees” includes all currently employed faculty and staff. It does not include student and graduate employees; they are counted under students.
  • This dashboard does not distinguish between students living on or off campus. The location where testing was performed does not correspond to the on- or off-campus status of a student or employee.
  • The 7-day average of positive cases is the number of cases over the past 7 days divided by 7. The 7-day average percent positive is the number of positive test results over the past 7 days divided by the total number of tests done over the past 7 days.
