About the Data

  • This dashboard features data from testing performed on campus.
  • The dashboard is updated weekly by 3 p.m. on Mondays.
  • Data from a previous week may change if additional information becomes available.
  • In keeping with the state’s COVID-19 reporting practices, results from self-administered antigen tests are not being collected or reported on this dashboard. Currently the state requirement for reporting is a positive PCR test or a positive antigen test administered by a trained individual at a testing site. Please see our guide to which test to take.
  • This dashboard does not distinguish between students living on or off campus.
  • By the end of the 2021-2022 academic year, more than 95% of the campus community had completed the initial COVID-19 vaccination series. Given the close of the academic year, this information is no longer reflected on the dashboard. University Health Services continues to offer COVID-19 vaccination, including first and second booster shots, free to all eligible students and employees.
