"GV Surveillance" data are based on invitations to various groups: (1) regular (weekly or bi-weekly) testing of groups such as resident assistants and faculty teaching face-to-face courses; (2) students in specific residence halls or apartment complexes, on a multi-week rotation; (3) targeted testing of specific groups in a given week due to current COVID conditions; and (4) students and staff chosen randomly each week.  About 1 in 7 students who are attending at least one course on campus are invited each week.  More details are available about the GV testing program.  "GV Total" includes surveillance testing plus all symptomatic/exposure tests administered on campus by Spectrum Health. The GV testing program began on August 21, 2020.


COVID-19 Vaccinations in the GVSU Community

The Virus Action Team works with regional and state health authorities and the West Michigan COVID-19 Vaccine Collaborative to obtain vaccine opportunities for the GVSU community. All community members are encouraged to schedule a vaccine appointment on their own whenever they are available. GVSU-specific vaccine opportunities will be shared with the community via email and posted on the vaccine webpage on Lakers Together, where you can find COVID-19 vaccination information from the CDC and the State of Michigan.

Once you have received a vaccine dose, please report it on your daily self-assessment.

"Estimated Percent Vaccinated" is calculated as the number individuals that have reported at least one dose on their self-assessment, divided by the number of individuals that have submitted a self-assessment in W2021. As a fraction of the total number of students enrolled and faculty/staff employed, 17.5% of students and 73.4% of faculty/staff have reported at least one vaccination as of 2021-04-29.
