Augustana College COVID-19 dashboard

Augustana College is closely monitoring vaccination rates and cases of COVID-19 on campus and in our geographic area. The college will share data weekly on this page when classes are on session.

Illinois requires that personnel and students at higher education institutions receive the vaccine. Employees and students who do not receive the vaccine must follow a routine testing schedule at least once a week.

Testing of unvaccinated students and employees at Augustana began the week of Sept. 5.

This data summarizes findings of the Augustana Strong testing protocol. Only the Total Numbers section below includes self-reported positive cases outside the college’s required testing protocol. 

New results will be shared every week. Each update will reflect testing data from the prior week.
