UA System COVID Numbers Hit Lowest Point this Academic Year
According to the UA System COVID-19 data dashboard, this week's combined number of COVID positive students, faculty, staff, and clinical enterprise employees within the System reached its lowest level since the beginning of the academic year.
Robust testing, masks, social distancing, vaccine administration, and other health and safety measures of the UA System Comprehensive Health & Safety Plan continue to mitigate transmission on our three campuses.
The UA System remains attentive to protecting our campus communities from the spread of COVID-19, while working to expand opportunities for employee vaccination.
Key COVID dashboard data this week:
- Total of 46 positive COVID tests among students System-wide. This is down from 100 last week and 191 the week prior.
- With only 17 students in designated quarantine and isolation housing across the System, the occupancy level is 2%.
- Employee positivity represents a steep decline from peak highs, as only 44 of our 40,000 employees System-wide tested positive this week.
The next UA System Dashboard update will be released Friday, February 26.
