Academic Year COVID Dashboard

The COVID-19 Dashboard is final for the 2021-2022 academic year. Springfield College will not be conducting symptomatic testing on-campus this summer.

The information posted is the best available information Springfield College had at the time. The data reported includes all tests conducted on the Springfield College campus. Positive cases reported include both those reported to the College from our Broad testing and any positive case that is reported to the College from an off-campus test. The number of tests administered each week can vary based on testing needs as well as the capacity of the Broad Institute to process all tests. The vast majority of test results are received within 24 hours of the samples reaching the lab (24-36 hours from specimen collection); occasionally the Broad has maintenance or other issues that result in delays, though those have been very limited. A very small percentage of tests are not able to be processed by the lab and those individuals are retested.
