September 24, 2021 COVID Dashboard Update

On September 24, 2021, the WPI COVID Testing Dashboard was updated to provide additional detail regarding positive cases among our campus community. Positive cases are now delineated by student academic level, faculty, and staff.  For data on cases in the city, region, and state, refer to the Massachusetts COVID-19 Response Reporting page.

Daily Report

WPI is closely tracking the health of our community through frequent, routine COVID-19 testing of every student, faculty member, employee, and contract worker that will physically be on campus. This data, combined with related trends in the city, region and state, will help inform the ongoing operating status of the WPI campus. The dashboard is updated each business day, Monday through Friday, at 4 pm to include the previous day's results as of 11:59 pm. Please refer to definitions below the dashboard for more information on how data is calculated.
