COVID-19 Dashboard | Spring 2021

Last Update: 02/24/2021

Norfolk State University (NSU) remains committed to the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. To promote health and safety in our campus community, NSU has implemented a COVID-19 testing framework to provide testing for all students residing on campus as well as students that would be present on campus for academic, co-curricular, and employment purposes. Faculty and staff working on campus have also been afforded opportunities to take a COVID-19 test. Surveillance testing will also be conducted.  

On a weekly basis, NSU provides COVID-19 data to the Virginia Higher Education COVID-19 Dashboard. Other public higher education institutions also provide COVID-19 data for this dashboard. The Virginia Higher Education COVID-19 Dashboard can be accessed here: https://covid19.va.education.
