COVID-19 Testing Update

by MTU Flex Task Force

Throughout the fall semester, as we continue to test more students through our surveillance testing program and more employees participate in asymptomatic testing, it is likely we will see fluctuations in our testing results. Because testing for the weekend has concluded, we’ve posted Tuesday morning’s report. The figures posted today reflect a sizable increase in the number of tests where COVID-19 has been detected. 

This increase reflects the efforts of our testing strategy. This past week, we concentrated testing on a few potential “hot spots” in an effort to isolate potential positive clusters. Much of last week’s testing focused on individuals in off-campus congregate living and those spending time with specific groups of individuals.
