Dashboard for MIT COVID-19 testing

MIT's Covid Pass Dashboard summarizes the results of MIT's COVID testing service for individuals approved to live, study or work on campus. This dashboard is for informational purposes only and not meant to serve as public health guidance or to be used for formal research purposes.

Dashboard Notes

  • The dashboard has been updated and simplified to reflect new Institute policies, effective, March 14, 2022. With the switch to optional, targeted testing (for those who are symptomatic, have been exposed, or believe they are at increased recent risk) displaying percentage-based positives would provide an incomplete view of Covid-19 rates on campus because those choosing to test are more likely to be positive and because fewer community members are testing.
  • Dashboard data are presented based upon the date tests are administered. Test results are typically returned in one to two days. Recent counts may be incomplete, and will be updated, without advance notice, as they become available. Note: if yesterday has few or no tests, it is likely because testing was not available.
  • Students, Employees, and Affiliates: Students encompass graduate and undergraduate students with access to campus. Employees include postdoctoral associates and other research staff, faculty and instructors, and service, support and administrative staff who support campus operations. Affiliates refers to contracted workers in dining, custodial, and security, and other staff authorized to access campus through Covid Pass as well as family members of those approved to live on campus.
  • A summary of older dashboard data for required COVID testing is available.
