Duke University’s comprehensive COVID-19 testing and contact tracing program administered 20,020 tests to 10,434* students and 2,839 tests to 1,593 faculty/staff for the period Feb. 1-7, with a total of 56 positive results.
Among students there were 40 positive results, identified through surveillance testing for asymptomatic students as well as tests for those exhibiting symptoms and one final baseline/gateway test. The individuals who tested positive have been placed in isolation, while those identified as potential contacts have been placed in precautionary quarantine. The total positivity rate was 0.24 percent.
The full announcement of testing results is posted to Duke Today.
Testing data is also available on our Testing Tracker, which is updated every Tuesday.
*This number has been corrected; we inadvertently included the total number of individuals tested (12,027) instead of the number of individual students tested in the initial post.
