Regional Data

About the Dashboard

  • The Average Test Turnaround metric is a measure of the average time from when a sample is received at the testing facility to when the result of the test was available.
  • Confirmed case counts are based on data from Northwestern’s various testing vendors. It includes Northwestern University students, staff and faculty. This data may include the same individuals under more than one category if they have multiple university roles. 
  • If you were identified as someone who has been in contact with, or in close proximity to, any individual who has tested positive for the virus, you will be notified.
