Dashboard: COVID-19 Alert Levels

Updated May 8, 2021

Current status: Campus case rate hits 0% for first time since tracking began August 23, 2020.

Augsburg’s 14-day on-campus case rate was 0% for the two weeks ending May 8. Although additional cases for this time period could still be confirmed, this is the first time since we began tracking COVID-19 cases on campus that we had no confirmed cases two weeks in a row.

Regional rates also  continue to decline in the last weeks of April and into May, as does the test positivity rate and other statewide case metrics. The vaccination rate in Minnesota has slowed but, at the current pace, we are still on track to have 70% of Minnesotans age 16+ with at least one dose before July 1.

The table below presents Augsburg’s current COVID-19 metrics as of May 8, except where noted. For data on prior weeks, see Augsburg’s COVID-19 Dashboard Metrics report.
