COVID-19 Entry Test Reporting Archive

KU reported results received through our campus entry saliva-based testing that was required for faculty, staff, and students returning to our Lawrence and Edwards campuses prior to the fall 2020 semester. The results are for entry testing and also include some targeted follow-up tests among our student population. The results are not necessarily indicative of all positive cases in people associated with KU and may not precisely correspond with other official reports of cases. The figures also do not include testing efforts conducted through Kansas Athletics for its student-athletes. The final update for our entry testing results was released on Sept. 2. On Sept. 11, KU launched a new dashboard-based approach to sharing testing results and other COVID-19 related data.
