Duke University’s comprehensive COVID-19 testing and contact tracing program administered 19,859 tests to 10,478 students and 2,678 tests to 1,541 faculty/staff for the period March 1-7 2021, with a total of 57 positive results.
Among students there were 53 positive results, almost entirely among undergraduate students, (46 of the 53). Positive cases were identified through surveillance testing for asymptomatic students as well as tests for those exhibiting symptoms. 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 0.25%.
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.
