RISD COVID Testing Data

To help keep RISD students, faculty, staff and families informed about community health and wellness, the COVID-19 dashboard below provides up-to-date statistics from ongoing campus testing.

As a reminder, on-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 immediately move into isolation housing on the third floor of 15 West, where they are cared for according to established protocols. Students who live off campus who test positive for COVID-19 are encouraged to isolate on campus. There are no additional fees for housing and dining for the time student is in isolation. RISD employees are expected to isolate at home and seek care as needed if they test positive.

It is our hope that this dashboard helps illustrate the impact of our shared effort to contain COVID-19 and foster community health.

Please note: Confidentiality laws prohibit the institution from disclosing any identifying information about affected individuals.
