About our updates

These figures for current active cases were correct as of 9 May. They include both staff and students tested at the University’s Test and Trace service on campus. They also include positive tests reported to the University by staff or students who have been tested elsewhere.

All of our data is shared with Public Heath England.


Reporting asymptomatic test results

You can find out more about asymptomatic testing here. Please note, we will be unable to report on asymptomatic test results because we will not receive any individual results.


Reporting verification results

If someone gets a positive test result in asymptomatic testing, they need to book a verification test. This test must take place at a Test and Trace service as it is a different kind of test. If possible, we encourage staff and students to use our dedicated Test and Trace service. This will help us to have confirmation of test results and provide support and contact tracing.

Any tests at our dedicated Test and Trace service will also count amongst our number of active Covid-19 cases in our community. We will continue reporting on these numbers until the end of term.

Individuals can break the required 10 days’ self-isolation to attend a testing appointment.


Who do the figures above include?

Why do they differ from elsewhere?

Please note, there are external websites that give Covid-19 positive test numbers for areas of Coventry and Warwickshire which depict locations that include the campus and which give a range of different numbers. The numbers on those external websites may vary as they may cover a geographical area that include places beyond the University’s boundaries, or they may cover a different time period, or both those factors apply.
