The George Washington University is committed to maintaining a healthy and safe environment for the campus community through COVID-19 disease prevention, infection control and mitigation. As part of our efforts, GW is conducting surveillance and symptomatic COVID-19 testing, epidemiological analyses of testing and clinical data, clinical followup, campus exposure tracing, and care for faculty, staff, and students authorized to be on our Foggy Bottom and VSTC campus locations for the fall 2020 semester. In so doing we are working closely with the DC and Virginia Departments of Health.
The GW COVID-19 Testing Dashboard is updated every day and provides aggregate and daily testing numbers, results and positivity rates for the approximately 4,000 members of the on-campus community, who are required to take part in the regular testing protocol as a condition of access to campus. About 2,600 faculty, staff and contractors and about 1,300 students, including 500 residential students, have been approved to be on campus. Testing operations commenced on Monday, August 17th and typically take place Monday through Friday.
GW’s diagnostic tests were developed by Milken School of Public Health researchers and are being processed in a new public health lab on campus. Testing and results can be viewed by affiliation—student, faculty, staff or contractor—as well as by campus—Foggy Bottom or Virginia Science and Technology Campus. The dashboard also indicates whether a test was performed as part of regular surveillance or because an individual was symptomatic.
