NOTE: The number of tests conducted includes surveillance testing of student athletes. We continue to test symptomatic or recently-exposed students (and their close contacts) at our student testing center. Surveillance testing is the intentional testing of non-symptomatic students.


Self-Reported Results of Off-Campus Testing

The chart below shows the number of Catholic University students who have self-reported positive COVID-19 test results from an off-campus testing center. The nature, quality, and reliability of testing conducted independent of the University can vary widely, with different chances for false positives. We are including this information in our regular reporting in the interest of full transparency, hoping it will continue to inform sound decision making on the part of all members of the community.

Students who receive a positive COVID test result from an off-campus testing center should inform the Dean of Students so that we can provide support. We encourage students to also contact Student Health Services for additional medical guidance or if their condition is worsening or not improving. Faculty and staff who receive a report from a student that they have tested positive for COVID should also inform the Dean of Students.
