UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State has updated its public COVID-19 dashboard with the University's on-demand testing and random testing results from tests administered during the period of Oct. 9 to 11, as well as new University testing results from the prior week. The few pending results will be validated and uploaded when completed. There are no new employee positive cases from University testing on any campus.
For the period of Oct. 9 to 11, the University Park campus received 45 positive on-demand test results and one positive random testing result from student testing. The dashboard also indicates that 2,952 students at University Park have completed their isolation period and are no longer active cases.
Test results received with respect to tests conducted in the week of Oct. 2 to 8 have added 138 positive on-demand student testing results and 10 additional positive student random testing results for the University Park campus for that week. This brings the current total for the University Park campus for that week to 416 positive on-demand testing results and 19 positive random testing results from student testing.
“We are seeing our positive test results decline from their peak in mid-September, however, this virus is easily transmitted and, as we have seen elsewhere, progress can be reversed quickly,” said Kelly Wolgast, director of the University’s COVID-19 Operations Control Center. “We ask all in our community to continue to be diligent about following public health guidance and responsive to the University’s calls to participate in surveillance testing.”
