A review of Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters

  • Our goal was to administer 2500 to 3000 tests each week, to members of the GVSU community that spend time on campus -- employees and students. In the end, over 80,000 tests were administered.
  • Invitations were sent out by e-mail and text message
  • Tests were administered weekly to these groups:
    • Faculty teaching traditional and/or hybrid courses
    • Resident Assistants
    • Public facing staff (e.g. Police Department, Admissions)
    • Random testing of students and staff
    • Selected testing of on-campus students
    • Selected testing of near-campus students (Allendale)
    • Student-athletes
  • Over 1100 infected individuals were identified through our testing program.  The cumulative positivity rate for the academic year was 1.37%.
