Campus Dashboard

Notes on Data Processing and Display

The dashboard presents a once-daily snapshot of fluid data that changes throughout the day. Data points can change in differing timeframes, occasionally resulting in lags between posted results. Daily testing data may take up to 48 hours to fully process and display. A high volume of tests being collected and processed is currently causing additional delays.

This dashboard was updated Jan. 14, 2022, to include data on the number of students who tested positive and to distinguish that information from total positive tests. (There are more positive tests than positive cases, as some people require multiple tests to confirm results or determine whether they remain infectious.)


Vaccination Requirement

Per CSU mandate, all Cal Poly students and employees accessing campus for any reason in fall must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or request a medical or religious exemption. For more information, see Campus Requirements.

Testing Data

Testing Data
Testing data above reflects only tests administered through Campus Health and Wellbeing or through the university’s ongoing testing program.
Students and employees also can also access testing via non-university providers off campus. These off-campus tests are not reflected in testing data above.

Please note: Positive tests for employees or off-campus resident students obtained off campus are not reported to Cal Poly unless they require contact investigation or isolation/quarantine actions on campus. These off-campus positive tests are reflected in countywide and community-specific statistics (for their community of residence), available at San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department. On-campus resident students who test positive off campus are reported to the university, for purposes of isolation/quarantine and associated contact investigation.

Isolation, Quarantine, and Quarantine in Place

On-campus resident students who test positive for COVID-19 are placed in isolation in on-campus University Housing facilities and provided with direct dining, laundry and other support services.
