About the Dashboard
In general, dashboard information is updated by 8 a.m. with results from the previous day of testing. There may be periodic updates at other times to reflect new information received. Information about the fall semester has been archived.
The CU Boulder Dashboard contains:
- Daily Summary
- Boulder County Case Count
- COVID-19 Vaccinations
- Monitoring Testing
- On-Campus PCR Diagnostic Tests
- Positive On-Campus PCR Diagnostic Tests
- Utilization of Isolation Spaces
- Totals by Week
The University of Colorado Boulder COVID-19-Ready Dashboard has an "A" rating from the Yale University "We Rate Covid Dashboards" project.
Please note: CU Boulder positive cases are included in countywide case counts and monitored by Boulder County Public Health.
The positive test results on this dashboard include only results from polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, diagnostic tests completed through CU Boulder Medical Services. The results shown here do not include testing completed via outside testing or primary care physicians. Since this dashboard includes only positive results from diagnostic testing through CU Boulder Medical Services, this information does not include positive cases involving members of the CU Boulder community who are studying, teaching, working or conducting research exclusively remotely and not accessing any on-campus services.
We conduct hundreds of molecular PCR monitoring tests per day as part of our proactive monitoring. Those with positive results are referred to our health clinic for conclusive diagnostic PCR testing. Most who are referred for diagnostic tests are presumed positive, so a high positivity rate is expected. That rate of positivity will vary by sample group—no single representation of results should be interpreted as the positivity rate of the virus on the campus as a whole.
In the time period from March to August 1, 2020, CU Boulder Medical Services performed 845 PCR tests that resulted in 66 positive.
