Lawrence administers COVID-19 surveillance tests to asymptomatic Lawrence community members. Given the capacity of asymptomatic testing in Wisconsin, the university is relying on a lab in New Jersey to diagnose all saliva-based tests administered on campus; test results take approximately 2-4 days to receive.
Lawrence faculty and staff working on campus, including Bon Appétit employees, during Winter Term will be tested at the start of the term. Lawrence students living or learning on campus during Winter Term will be tested upon arrival and then two weeks later. Randomized testing will be conducted on a weekly basis thereafter; testing groups are determined by campus and community epidemiological data at that time.
Student athletes who are practicing or competing will participate in increased testing following NCAA guidelines. These test results are also included in the on-campus testing numbers.
A case indicates the person has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus (not the antibody) through on-campus or off-campus testing. Individuals who have been diagnosed by a health care provider based on symptoms are also considered a case. 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) through on-campus or off-campus testing. Individuals who have been diagnosed by a health care provider based on symptoms are also considered a case.
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.
