COVID-19 Dashboard

Testing continues to play an important role in our ability to safely keep campus open. Students and employees who are not currently fully vaccinated are required to complete both return-to-campus COVID testing as well as ongoing testing every two weeks. Student-athletes are required to test according to protocols determined by the NCAA. 

  • For return-to-campus in January 2022, a majority of students and employees submitted test results from community testing locations. Limited on campus testing was conducted. The Total Tests number only reflects the number of tests administered on campus in 2021-22 for January return-to-campus testing, as well as those who meet certain criteria, have possible exposures, those who request a test and required NCAA testing.
  • The numbers reports on Jan. 18 reflect the total cases reported to the university since January 1.
