The university has not had a cluster since Mar. 23, where five student residents in Pride Hall tested positive. Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 should contact the Student Health Center and take heed to the advice of your healthcare provider 

The dashboard is updated every Friday and testing is available at the Student Health Center which is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
