Lawrence University’s COVID-19 Dashboard tracks the impact of the pandemic on our campus community. All data reflect students, faculty, and staff currently living, learning, or working on campus, including members of the Bon Appétit staff.
Information on this page is updated every Monday and reflects data from the previous week (Monday through Sunday).

Lawrence-administered COVID-19 diagnostic tests. Tests consist of an anterior nasal swab of each nostril.
Lawrence students living or learning on campus were tested upon arrival and then two weeks later. Faculty and staff working on campus this fall, including Bon Appétit employees, were tested prior to the start of fall term and then two weeks later. Randomized testing is being conducted on a weekly basis thereafter; testing groups are determined by campus and community epidemiologic data at that time.
Given the capacity of asymptomatic testing in Wisconsin, the university is relying on a lab in Indiana to diagnose all tests administered on campus. As a result, test results take 3-5 days to receive.
A case indicates the person has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus (not the antibody) through on-campus testing or was diagnosed by a health care provider. A new case indicates a new diagnosis since the last dashboard update.
Active Cases reflect students or employees currently in isolation who has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus (not the antibody) or was diagnosed by a health care provider.
Treatment of Cases
Students who are diagnosed as positive for COVID-19 will be immediately moved to a separate isolation area on campus. Faculty and staff who are diagnosed as positive will be asked to isolate at home. In coordination with local health departments, individuals will be given instructions for isolation, education to protect themselves and others around them, information for what to do if symptomatic, and daily follow-ups. More information regarding isolation protocols.
