Guide to Fall 2020

Reported Positive Cases

Beginning Aug. 4, 2020, SFA faculty, staff and students are required to inform the university when they have taken a test for COVID-19. This report can be made online via the COVID-19 Test Report. Reporting when you take a test rather than waiting for the test result allows for a faster response.

The tables below contain information that is largely self-reported. Confirmation of the results of each test cannot be definitively verified.

Positive Results

The table below shows the number of positive tests reported by SFA faculty, staff or students who may have been present on campus during the time of their infection.

  Cumulative since 7/23/20* Recovered** Active
