- A number of modifications remain in effect during the phased return to campus activity.
The University's plan is subject to change. Check this website often for the latest information.
The dashboard is updated daily at 12:00pm. Test results reflect Notre Dame administered diagnostic tests by the Wellness Center and University Health Services (including athletic team surveillance testing).
All data are provisional and subject to change. One especially meaningful source of change results from PCR tests that are given on a particular day, for which we do not receive results until 1-2 days later. We count the tests on the day that they were administered. We also attribute positives to the day on which the test was taken. This may lead to the number of cases on a given day going up a few days later. This gives a more accurate sense of how case numbers are changing over time.

Pre-matriculation Testing Results
As part of our health and safety guidelines for returning to campus, all enrolled Notre Dame undergraduate and graduate students were required to undergo pre-matriculation testing. The University partnered with LabCorp, a leading national provider of tests and lab services, to distribute tests to students. University Health Services (UHS) received students’ test results.
- A total of 11,836 tests yielded
- 33 positive cases (.28%)
Please note that a small number of laboratory results were still pending as of 8/10/20. Students who tested positive or whose tests are pending were required to stay home and away from campus until cleared by a UHS provider.
What happens when someone tests positive for COVID-19?
When a member of the campus community tests positive for COVID-19, they enter into the University’s Quarantine and Isolation protocol. Also, the University’s COVID Response Unit initiates a Contact Tracing program. Details are here.
