COVID-19 Dashboard

Keeping Wellesley Healthy

Wellesley is partnering with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard to provide asymptomatic testing for all students, faculty, and staff on campus. This dashboard reports on test results from the asymptomatic testing program in the last seven testing days and the number of positive cases in our on-campus community during the same time period. Numbers are posted daily for results received as of midnight the day before the dashboard is updated for test samples collected two days before the dashboard is updated. The graph shows weekly positive cases for each week.

This dashboard shows Fall 2021 data beginning on August 22, 2021. For past data, see the  Spring 2021 and Fall 2020 dashboards.

Testing frequency

​All students will be tested twice weekly and all faculty and staff who come to campus on a regular basis at least one day a week will be tested once weekly as part of a pooled PCR testing program. With pooled testing, all individuals are tested using a nasal swab, and the samples are analyzed in groups of 10. Any positive pools are retested with Binax antigen and individual PCR tests.
