COVID-19 weekly snapshot

The following information is a supplement to the university's COVID-19 Public Health Data weekly updates. It is intended to provide a brief snapshot of the data and trends identified by Iowa State's public health team. 

Week of Nov. 16 - 22

  • Total positive test results (on-campus testing and self-reports): 268. The weekly positivity rate is 5.2%. The totals include results from asymptomatic testing offered to students before winter break.
  • All students – even those who receive a COVID-19 test – need to stay vigilant and take precautions when they return home. Test results only capture a snapshot in time and a negative result does not protect against future exposure.
  • COVID-19 testing will be offered over winter break at Thielen Student Health Center. The remote testing site at Johnny’s in Hilton Coliseum will resume normal operations on Jan. 10, 2021.
