Dashboard – Summer 2021

Updated Weekdays at 3 p.m. Last updated September 27, 2021.

The dashboard will not be updated on Monday, Sept. 6. A new version of the dashboard will launch Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 2 p.m.

This dashboard provides information to the campus community and the public about vaccinations and COVID-19 test results among current UW–Madison faculty, staff and students. UW–Madison will not disclose names or other information that could potentially identify a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Anyone who tests positive is directed to self-isolate and seek appropriate medical care. Contact tracers from University Health Services and Public Health Madison & Dane County will notify anyone believed to have been in close contact (more than 15 minutes within 6 feet) with someone who has tested positive. If you are contacted by UHS or PHMDC, please respond immediately to receive important health information.

The dashboard has been updated to reflect a shift in the campus COVID-19 testing program that began May 10. Archived dashboards presenting data from Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 remain available.
