COVID-19 Dashboard

Keeping Wellesley Healthy

Wellesley is partnering with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard to provide asymptomatic testing for all students on campus and designated members of our faculty and staff. 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 Wednesday through Sunday 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 graphs include weekly positive cases to date and cumulative asymptomatic test results.

Total asymptomatic test results in past 7 testing days
Moving sum of tests results from the asymptomatic testing program on campus in the past seven testing days. Reported numbers are based on results received as of midnight the day before the dashboard is posted for test samples collected two days before the dashboard is posted. Weekly totals in graphs are based on totals for calendar weeks noted.

Positive cases in past 7 testing days
Moving sum of positive cases among on-campus Wellesley students, faculty and staff in past seven testing days, including both asymptomatic and symptomatic results. Reported numbers are based on results received as of midnight the day before the dashboard is posted for test samples collected two days before the dashboard is posted. Positive test results may include false positives. They may also include cases in which an individual was positive within the last 90 days and recovered, though can still test positive. A day-to-day reduction in these numbers may reflect the confirmation of a false positive, at which point the false positive is removed from the total shown in the dashboard. Weekly totals in graphs are based on totals for calendar weeks noted. 

Invalid
Invalid results include inconclusive test results or results that could otherwise not be reported due to other issues. Individuals with invalid results will be retested the following day.
