COVID-19 dashboard update: Cases down to 91 as Thanksgiving break ends

There are 91 active coronavirus cases at USC as of Monday, according to the most recent update of the university’s COVID-19 dashboard

Of those, 85 cases are students and six are university employees. From Nov. 24 to Nov. 30, over 2,700 people were tested; 682 of those tests are pending.

Over Thanksgiving break, active cases reached a peak of 171 on Nov. 25, then slowly declined.

Testing will continue this week, with nasal swab testing at the Center for Health and Well-Being, and saliva testing at 1311 Pendleton St. See the full schedule here.

Those experiencing symptoms should make a telemedicine appointment through MyHealthSpace.

The quarantine and isolation dorms are 1.89% full. 

Since Aug. 1, 3,095 people have had the coronavirus and 3,004 have recovered. 

The alert level remains at the “new normal” level, the lowest on the scale. The alert level is calculated using 11 factors, including testing, on-campus case burden and quarantine and isolation capacity.  

The dashboard will be updated every Tuesday and Friday. The COVID-19 dashboard was not updated last Friday because of Thanksgiving break.
