UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State community can stay informed about the latest results of the University’s COVID-19 testing via the COVID-19 dashboard on, Penn State’s official coronavirus information website. 

As it was in the summer, the dashboard will continue to be updated twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, during the fall semester. 

The dashboard provides the latest data from Penn State’s COVID-19 testing program and is designed to help community members better understand virus case counts and prevalence, along with quarantine and isolation capacity, on each of the University’s campuses. Metrics include the number of tests performed by Penn State testing sources, the number of positive results, and positivity rates for both students and employees. Data is displayed by day and as a seven-day snapshot and can be filtered by campus. Tests and results are included on the dashboard once results are received, and are displayed by the date the test was performed. 

Full details about Penn State’s fall testing strategy, including information about required testing for unvaccinated individuals and both symptomatic and voluntary testing options, can be found on the Testing and Support page on
