University of Washington COVID-19 Case Tracking Dashboard

This dashboard includes positive COVID-19 test results reported to the University by UW community members, and test results (both positive and negative) from the Husky Coronavirus Testing program powered by the Seattle Flu Study (SFS).

The data exclude University medical center employees and persons not affiliated with the University. The dashboard data may not include all cases of COVID-19 among UW community members due to the likelihood that not all cases are reported to the University.

This dashboard was launched Sept. 24, 2020. Case reports from the previous testing results page have been archived.

Using the dashboard

Data is uploaded to the dashboard one time each day, seven days per week. The date the data was last updated is indicated in the top right corner of the dashboard. Users can filter the results by selecting a campus location or affiliation.

The Cumulative Positive Cases and Number of Positive Cases by Date of Symptom Start or Test Date sections reflect all positive cases among UW community members reported to the University.

Surges or dips in case counts with known explanations are noted on the Number of Positive Cases by Date of Symptom Start or Test Date graph. Hover over a yellow bar to view the explanation for a surge or dip.

Hover over any bar on the Number of Positive Cases by Date of Symptom Start or Test Date graph to highlight the week prior to and the week after the selected date in the Details box.

Filter data on the Number of Positive Cases by Date of Symptom Start or Test Date graph by clicking on a bar in the graph, or clicking and dragging your mouse to select multiple bars. After a bar (or multiple bars) are selected, the Cumulative Positive Cases chart will update according to the selection.

Click on any part of the white space of the Number of Positive Cases by Date of Symptom Start or Test Date graph to remove the selection, or refresh the page to reset the dashboard.

The Number of Positive Cases by Date of Symptom Start or Test Date graph does not show the total number of tests or percentage of positive results because not all test results (positive and negative) are reported to the UW Environmental Health & Safety Department.
