The University has administered 10,155 total tests since August 22. Out of the total tests, 2,033 have been symptomatic tests and 8,122 have been asymptomatic tests. The estimated active number of cases is 6, and the estimated number of recovered cases is 157 as of Monday.
Out of the 163 confirmed cases, 92 undergraduate students, 14 graduate students and 57 staff and faculty members have tested positive.
This semester, Notre Dame will require weekly surveillance testing for all unvaccinated undergraduate and professional students. In addition, any student who shows flu-like symptoms is expected to seek a diagnostic test.
All data on the dashboard is subject to change. PCR tests, which take one to two days to result, may lead to an increase in the number of cases on a specific day a few days later.
