Week: Begins on Monday and ends on Sunday

On campus: Includes students in residence on campus and commuter students, as well as employees who have been on campus within 4 weeks prior to the positive diagnosis. None of the above results include remote students. 

Isolation and quarantine spaces: The number of isolation spaces on campus will remain constant. Quarantine is shown as percent of students rather than spaces due to our general practice of students quarantining in place. 


Every student in residence, attending courses on-campus, or attending other approved on-campus activities must adhere to our return to campus health protocol which includes two negative COVID-19 tests in 7 days (tests included in historical data below), and our on-going health protocol which includes weekly, random asymptomatic testing (results above) and a daily symptom screening. Employees are required to report symptoms or positive test results to DePauw Health via a secure email address. 

Students whose first test result during return to campus testing indicates they tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 may not come to campus without express permission. These individuals will have specific instructions sent to them by Student Academic Life regarding a delayed move-in or details regarding their commuting plan. These students are still able to begin their courses remotely. 

Any invalid test results received are re-run with new tests. When a student is put into isolation, they have either tested positive for COVID-19 or have been considered clinically positive while we await a test. 

What happens when someone tests positive for COVID-19? 

When an on-campus student tests positive, they enter into the university's isolation protocol on campus, and are engaged in our contact tracing process. When employees, commuters or remote students test positive, they are engaged in our contact tracing process and advised to isolate away from campus for a designated period of time. 

Please Respect Individuals' Privacy

Anonymity for individuals who have tested positive remains paramount. Please respect their privacy — even if you believe you know who they are — so they can focus on their health. As a community, we must do everything we can to support these individuals and one another through this incredibly difficult time.
