The University collects and shares aggregate results of faculty, postdocs, students, and staff who are on campus regularly and participate in the Penn Cares program.
The Penn Cares program is informed by the University’s profound respect for the impact its public health initiatives have on the health and safety of our friends, families, and neighbors.
- COVID-19 testing includes screening of asymptomatic faculty, postdocs, students, and staff who are on campus as well as diagnostic testing of members of the University community who report symptoms or close contacts through PennOpen Pass.

- Data in the results represent University-managed testing, primarily conducted on campus across seven locations, including one site which tests symptomatic and close-contact individuals.

Campus Alert Level
The University of Pennsylvania is currently operating at Level 2: Heightened Awareness.
These most recent results continue to be reassuring amidst otherwise worrisome national and regional trends. We must continue to remain vigilant and follow public health guidance about distancing, masking and frequent hand washing. It is important not to let our guard down as the University embarks on a stepped approach to offer vaccines to members of the Penn community over the coming weeks.
