COVID-19 Daily Testing

While viewing the data, please keep the following in mind:

  1. This does not reflect tests administered on a given day, rather it shows results received by 4:30 p.m. the previous day. It includes both PCR and antigen-type tests.
  2. This represents only results from tests administered on campus through the Student Health Center. It does not reflect tests of students or staff conducted in the community or at other medical facilities.
  3. This percentage is in no way intended to represent the ratio of positive cases compared to the full student body or campus community. It reflects testing administered to both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.
  4. UW-La Crosse administers two types of tests. Antigen tests, which are used for general screening, are less accurate but have a faster turnaround. PCR tests, which are used to confirm positive antigen tests and other suspected cases, are more accurate but have a slower turnaround. Since one student can receive both a positive antigen test and a positive PCR test, our data does include duplicates. Consequently, the number of positive tests should not be confused with the number of confirmed cases.

In addition to these factors, the University is monitoring a wide set of data related to the presence of COVID-19 in Wisconsin:
