Dashboard: COVID-19 Alert Levels

Updated July 24, 2021

Current status: Regional transmission rates increasing, but still low

Regional case rates continue to increase but, so far, the rate of increase has been modest. The incline began at the beginning of July, so we could expect cases to increase for about six weeks from that date.

On campus, Augsburg still has not had a confirmed case of COVID-19 this summer.

The data in the table below are Augsburg’s COVID-19 metrics as of July 24 and regional/statewide metrics for July 4-10. For data on prior weeks, see Augsburg’s COVID-19 Dashboard Metrics report.
