COVID-19 Testing and Case Data

In an effort to keep the Case Western Reserve community informed about the presence of COVID-19 cases on campus and in our region, the university will report weekly the cumulative number of positive cases on campus and in Cuyahoga County.* 

Cumulative cases and tests date back to Saturday, Aug. 8, when broad student testing commenced. The figures for tests include those administered to both asymptomatic and symptomatic students.

Faculty/staff cases reference those reported to the university by the individual or a public health agency.

This data will be updated weekly on Tuesdays.

For the latest messages from the university, visit our campus communications webpage.
