Low Transmission Rate On Campus and Statewide

Posted on

Augsburg’s on-campus transmission rate has returned to a low level (less than 1% of the on-campus student population over 14 days). See Augsburg’s January 30 COVID-19 Dashboard for more detail.

Statewide trends are also encouraging. On January 31, the number of daily cases reported in Minnesota fell below 1,000 for the first time since September. Importantly, the decline in cases is not driven by lower levels of testing. Minnesota’s test positively rate is currently 3.3%, the lowest since late June and early July last summer. See the latest report from MPR’s David Montgomery for these and other recent data from Minnesota’s COVID-19 public health reports.
