Covid-19 Testing and Tracking

Auburn tracks positive cases reported through multiple sources:

  1. Self-reported data (including data from current students, employees and third-party contractors) who report testing positive for COVID-19, regardless of testing location

  2. Auburn University Medical Clinic data which tests Auburn students, facuty, staff and community members.

Testing information is compiled weekly (Monday–Sunday) and posted to the CRC site each week.

Self-Reported Positive Covid-19 Tests

The university requires all current students and employees who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of testing location, to complete a confidential Self-Report Form. Self-reported data includes those reports submitted by students, faculty, staff and third-party contractors working on campus who have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Self-Report Form is how an individual notifies Auburn University, through the COVID Resource Center, about their test result. Submission of the form enables the university to help reduce exposure among the campus community by providing necessary contact tracing and follow-up care.

Note: Total positive cases include self-reported numbers from Auburn students, employees and contractors. Auburn University Medical Clinic numbers are not added to this number as they include cases that were self-reported and individuals that are not part of the Auburn campus community.
