Emerson College Community Dashboard (COVID-19)

One Emerson

Emerson College is grateful to the students, faculty, and staff who have participated in the College’s COVID-19 testing program. Baseline and weekly testing began on August 7, 2020 and will continue throughout the fall term. While we expect the number of positive results to rise as our testing program continues, it is our hope the many safety measures that the College has put in place will mitigate the increase.

This dashboard will be updated daily, Monday through Friday. The most recent data available, in addition to cumulative data, will be posted below. To view previous testing results, please see our Previous Testing Cycles.

*Isolation is for those that are known or reasonably known to be infected - exhibiting symptoms OR no symptoms with a positive test (can typically be released after 10 days).

**Quarantine is for someone who may have been exposed but not yet showing symptoms (can take up to 14 days after exposure).

Note: Non-residential students, staff, and faculty, who test positive do not need to isolate on campus and instead isolate at home. Isolation or quarantine that occurs at home is not displayed on this dashboard.


***Number of positive tests divided by total number of tests conducted by Emerson/Tufts Medical Center/Broad Institute.
