Aug. 16: Fall 2021 Protocols
As we begin the Fall 2021 semester, Wake Forest has united in our collaborative efforts to have a fully operational campus. From listening to faculty, staff and students, we are aware of various concerns regarding the emergence of the Delta variant of COVID-19. We have created a set of guidelines regarding public health expectations and our approach to the fall semester in response to the ongoing pandemic and concerns regarding the Delta variant.

Understanding The Dashboards: At times, there may be discrepancies in our dashboard counts
because of the timing of the data refresh, self-reported tests and status changes of cases.
Understanding This Dashboard:
- COVID-19 cases reported on this dashboard include faculty, staff and students who are interacting on the Reynolda Campus and have known positive, laboratory-verified test results reported to the university. It does not include pre-arrival testing. Affiliate employees are included in the faculty/staff totals.
- The dashboard will be updated each weekday.
- The dashboard numbers reset as of Aug. 1, 2021.
- Positive cases are reported based on the date of the test, meaning the dashboard will reflect updates on past days.
