COVID-19 Dashboard

Whitworth University maintains this page to inform our community about the number of known COVID-19 cases on campus as well as the number of known COVID-19 cases that were positive but are no longer considered active cases.* Students who are in quarantine because they have had a close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or are awaiting test results will not be reflected in this data unless they do test positive for COVID-19.

This information will be updated weekly, with the exception of Whitworth-recognized holidays, to reflect the data from the previous week. (Data collection for the information on this page began Aug. 21.)

Spokane County Case Data

Whitworth will continue to surveillance test both on- and off-campus undergraduate students. This program allows us to identify cases where someone may have mild or no symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease within our campus community. Those chosen to test will continue to be random, but if we have an area on campus that is seeing a high volume of cases, we may ask more individuals in that area to take part in testing.

*The data above does not include employees and students who were confirmed as positive COVID-19 cases but who did not come to campus and were not in close contact with anyone affiliated with the Whitworth campus.
