Screen tests are conducted during the fall term Monday to Thursday in the lobby of the Adamian Academic Center and are required for all undergraduate and residential students. 

Test results are reported from the Broad Institute 24 to 48 hours later. The results reported here include tests conducted at the on-campus testing center of students, faculty and staff who have been on campus. The results include tests conducted on campus at the testing center, as well as laboratory-confirmed cases reported to the university involving students, faculty and staff who have been on campus. This dashboard will be updated as soon as test results come in to reflect the latest data received.

Testing Dashboard Archives


Positive Test: COVID-19 is the disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2. A positive test indicates that SARS-CoV-2 was present in the individual's test sample.

Negative Test: A negative test indicates that SARS-CoV-2 was not present in the individual's test sample.

Invalid Test: A small number of test results are reported as "invalid" due to process issues, such as a person not self-administering the test correctly, a processing issue leading to inconsistent data, or a laboratory accident that contaminates the sample. Any individual whose test sample is found invalid will be required to test again and may be asked to self-isolate as a suspect case until the follow-up test is processed.

Overall Positivity Rate: The percentage of total positive tests out of the total number of tests resulted. This rate does not include "invalid tests" as they are neither positive nor negative. 

Transmission Rate: The prevalence of COVID-19 within our population for a period.

Isolated Students: The current number of students who have tested positive for COVID-19 and been moved to isolation on campus or at home for recovery.

Quarantined Students: The current number of students identified through contact tracing as potentially exposed to individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. Unvaccinated close contacts are to be restricted to a room on campus or their home and required to remain in quarantine for up to 14 days. Fully vaccinated close contacts without symptoms are not required to quarantine and if they develop symptoms should contact the Health Center or their health care provider for testing and further guidance.
