COVID-19 dashboard update: Total cases down to 72 from last week

USC is now facing 72 active cases of COVID-19 on campus, according to the university's updated COVID-19 dashboard

The new number is a decrease from the last update's 97. Seventy of these cases are students, and two are employees.

Between this update and the last update on Nov. 13, the total positive rate of the 1,489 tests administered was 2.06%, with students having a positive rate of 2.7% and employees 0%. The last update had a total of 1,914 tests, and the 2.06% is a decrease from last update's positive rate of 2.4%. There are 809 tests pending. 

Since Aug. 1, a total of 2,867 people have had the coronavirus and 2,795 people have recovered.

Testing schedules and locations, which include Davis Field and behind the Student Health Center, can be found on the university's COVID-19 website.

Those experiencing symptoms should make a telemedicine appointment through MyHealthSpace.

The 828 total spaces in the quarantine and isolation dorms are 4.82% full. The dashboard no longer shows exactly how many people are in the dorms in the COVID-19 data spreadsheet provided alongside the update.

The alert level has decreased to 0.27 from 0.36, still in the “New Normal” level. The alert level is calculated using 11 factors, including testing, on-campus case burden and quarantine and isolation capacity. 

The COVID-19 dashboard will be updated every Tuesday and Friday.
