COVID-19 Cases at Colorado School of Mines

This dashboard reports on confirmed COVID-19 cases within the Colorado School of Mines community that have been reported to the university. The source of confirmation is either our on-campus community testing program (which began August 17, 2020) or tests administered through the Mines Student Health Center, primary care physicians or other off-campus testing sites. 

Mines’ community testing program is being managed through a partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado. Rather than focus on symptomatic testing, this proactive regimen seeks to test on-campus students, faculty and staff on a regular basis. For the Spring 2021 semester, surveillance testing will include weekly testing of campus residents (residence halls, 1750 Jackson, fraternities and sororities) and randomized testing of students living off campus. On-campus faculty, teaching assistants and staff may also elect to participate in campus testing.

These numbers reflect the cumulative number of campus cases reported since January 1, 2021. This dashboard is updated as often as possible during the week.
