The University of Nebraska–Lincoln reported 103 positive cases of COVID-19 during the most recent week of data (Feb. 11-17).

In that same span, 4,186 tests were completed on students, faculty and staff. The positivity rate during the week was 2.5%. Both totals reflect continued declines after 3.6% positivity rate and 187 positive cases the previous week.

Tests are conducted through the university’s saliva-based reentry testing program, the University Health Center and off-campus medical facilities.

Since the university started COVID-19 testing on Aug. 15, 2020, 10,054 positive cases have been recorded out of 317,136 tests, for a positivity rate of 3.2%.

This report is generated weekly and will be presented in Nebraska Today every Monday through the spring semester. Data is gathered from the university’s COVID-19 dashboard, which is tracking case and test totals daily. All COVID-19 testing information is provided to the university from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department.
