COVID-19 Cases and Reporting Procedures

187 total confirmed positive cases (172 students and 15 employees) reported to NDSU in the past ten days as of 9 a.m., Tuesday, January 25. Of the students, 19 are in isolation in university housing and 44 students are currently in quarantine in university housing.

Current positive cases include faculty, staff, or students who have received a positive test within the last ten days. 

This is the number of confirmed positive cases that we know about. We are providing this information so our employees and students can be aware of the Covid-19 activity on the NDSU-Fargo campus. We are not including cases for COVID-19 positive people who have not been physically on the NDSU-Fargo campus during the previous ten days.

Cases are reported to us a few ways, primarily through public health entities or individuals self reporting. Please see the links below for the procedures to self report.
There may be additional positive cases that have not been reported to NDSU.

NDSU does not have direct access to all the data of the people being tested. It takes a few days for the test results and notification processes to work.

We will not violate patient confidentiality by revealing identities. Public health officials are asking people who test positive to reach out to people they would consider to be a close contact and provide resources on what close contacts should do.
The number of students in isolation or being quarantined in university housing is provided because we are housing them, but there may be other students or employees in isolation or in quarantine elsewhere.

We will update the numbers by noon each weekday, except for holidays that fall on weekdays.
