On this site, we will post weekly results of COVID-19 tests of OWU students conducted during spring semester of 2021.

All OWU students receive an antigen test when they arrive on campus to immediately identify those with the virus. Anyone testing positive will be isolated and will receive a PCR test to confirm the results.

Each week throughout the semester, a random sample of about 150-200 students will receive a PCR test. Anyone testing positive will be isolated immediately, and those who have been in contact with them will be quarantined and tested. Student-athletes in high-risk and moderate-risk sports also are being tested 1-3 times per week with antigen tests in order to see the results immediately. OWU also is testing any student with COVID-19 symptoms.

Our goal is to update this site by 3:00 p.m. on Mondays with results from the previous week. Testing results from Fall 2020 are available here.
