COVID-19 Dashboard

Main Content

The following dashboards reflect the number of positive COVID-19 cases identified through testing available specifically for SIU students and staff effective Sept. 11, 2020. Any student, faculty or staff member who makes an appointment to be tested through the Southern Illinois Healthcare-SIU testing process is included, regardless of county of residence.

Fully Vaccinated on Campus

Students: 80% (6,171 )
Employees: 84% (2,461)

A positive case does not necessarily indicate that the individual has exposed others on campus. SIH refers positive cases to the appropriate county health department for contact tracing. Contact tracing of individuals who reside in Jackson County is conducted by the Jackson County Health Department with support from the university. Individuals who have been exposed will be notified personally and given instructions by representatives of the health department.

These numbers are not all-inclusive. For example, employees and students who are tested outside of the SIH-SIU process are not included.

Visit the Jackson County Health Department for information about cases in the county and what to do if you might have been exposed. Visit the Illinois Department of Public Health for information about total cases statewide and to search for cases by zip code.

Daily numbers

Each day, SIU will post data about on-campus tests conducted by Reditus Laboratories and the results. Please note results are available 24 to 48 hours after the tests.
