COVID-19 Testing, Vaccination and Case Data

This page includes weekly updates of COVID-19 data for Case Western Reserve and Cuyahoga County.

The first two statistics—Case Western Reserve's tests and positivity rate—incorporate only surveillance tests and results.

Surveillance testing generally aims to identify cases within the broader, asymptomatic population. In short, it provides information regarding the prevalence of COVID-19 in those instances where it is not otherwise evident—i.e., by virtue of people with symptoms or known exposures.

For purposes of transparency, case numbers for students and faculty/staff include data from symptomatic and surveillance testing.

These numbers are updated on Tuesdays.

Below the tables are three graphs that will indicate weekly trends over time; to view the specific numbers associated with each weekly time point, hover your cursor over the line at that time point.
