The University is partnering with Thermo Fisher Scientific to provide COVID-19 testing to the campus community.

About the Data

In accordance with local government reporting practices, which emphasize the strain on local medical systems rather than reporting each individual case, starting on August 7th, 2022, Howard University will be reporting severe cases only.

Please see the main University Pandemic Response landing page for more details about the status of campus operations.

We recommend using a desktop computer or device with a large screen when viewing the data below.

**Testing began at Howard in mid-August. During the initial weeks, some of the person type (student vs. faculty/staff) information for this early sample was deemed unreliable. Therefore, this initial data is not included within the line and bar charts that are separated into the two groups.
