WSU COVID-19 Dashboard: Spring 2021

The WSU COVID-19 Dashboard helps us track and analyze the impact of COVID-19 on the overall health of our campus community.

It has been updated with data from the current reporting period of Apr. 26-May 2. The dashboard has been reset to reflect data from Spring 2021 only.

See past data on the Fall 2020 COVID-19 Dashboard.

As we head into summer and the majority of students leave campus, the COVID-19 dashboard will not be updated on a regular basis. Updates and notifications will be sent out via email as necessary.

Also, certain external groups have been granted permission to hold activities on campus over the summer months. These groups have formulated detailed COVID-19 mitigation plans and presented them to Cabinet for approval in order to have access to our facilities.

Minnesota State system also has a COVID-19 Dashboard for all colleges and universities that is independently updated.


  • Only WSU students are represented in this data. It does not include WSU faculty or staff.
  • Some individuals testing positive may not have been physically present on the WSU campuses in Winona or Rochester
  • There may be other cases that we have not been informed of
  • These numbers are based on available information from multiple sources and are subject to change
  • WSU has a quarantine and isolation protocol in place. We are closely tracking all reports and are working with those who may have been in contact with individuals reporting positive cases.

Please complete the COVID-19 Self Report if you receive a positive test result to help us keep our community safe.

We are counting on all Warriors to take 5 actions every day: take the daily self-assessment, physically distance, wear a mask, wash hands and surfaces, check in with friends and family.

What Does the Data Mean?

The number of reported cases and number of individuals in quarantine or isolation are two factors among several that impact our campus safety level.

The number of students in isolation and quarantine are the best indication of the impact that COVID-19 is having on our campus. This is because students in quarantine and isolation need to limit their activities and interactions for a period of time whether or not they receive a positive test result

These are students who are not attending their in-person classes, not going in for their work shifts and not being present in on-campus facilities. These are students who need attention and care while they take the necessary steps to slow the spread on our campus.

By focusing on positive cases only, we overlook the majority of students who have been impacted by COVID-19.
