The chart below shows the number of COVID-19 tests administered to Catholic University students by Student Health Services, as well as the number of positive results and the number of test results pending for each period.
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.
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.
