COVID-19 Testing Dashboard

The Westfield State University COVID-19 Dashboard provides information relating to the health of our campus community—students, faculty, and staff—by transparently sharing metrics, such as the number of tests conducted, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, and trends in positive test results and percent positivity rates, consistent with local and state reporting protocols. Our testing operation is underway and operating efficiently and effectively. This dashboard will be updated each Thursday with the latest information from our testing partners.

Residential and commuter students with an on-campus presence are required to participate in onboard and asymptomatic COVID-19 testing. Faculty and staff testing is voluntary, but those with an on-campus presence, particularly those interacting with students, are strongly encouraged to participate in onboard and asymptomatic testing. It is important to note that residential and commuter students will return to campus on Sept. 29, 2020. Select residential and commuter students with specific academic requirements or other approved exemptions began to return to campus on Aug. 31, 2020. Please review the COVID-19 Testing Schedule.
