Testing Updates

We continue to monitor the state of the pandemic and changing conditions in the public health of the Hofstra community as well as our region. As recommended by the CDC, we are monitoring community transmission, vaccination coverage, testing data and developments in scientific and medical knowledge to guide our decisions. Changes in any of these factors may in turn warrant changes to University policies, which will be communicated to the campus community.

Last year, New York State regulations required public posting of testing data; this posting is not currently required by state regulations. Despite this, the University will continue to post publicly COVID-19 test results (as noted below) on a weekly basis each Friday to keep the Hofstra community informed.

Week Ending July 1, 2022

Covid testing update:

For the period from June 25, 2022 to July 1, 2022, the University administered surveillance testing of students. 53 tests were administered with 1 positive result.

From June 25, 2022 to July 1, 2022, there was 1 confirmed positive case from the 4 tests administered through other on-campus tests (through Student Health Services, in addition to surveillance testing).  There was 1 confirmed case reported through off-campus testing.  We include off-campus testing results upon receipt of confirmed test results, which is often after the fact.  Our reporting is updated upon receipt of newly confirmed information.

During the same period, we reported 7 positive test results for employees.

Vaccination Statistics:

  • 100% of Hofstra Employees are compliant with the University’s vaccination mandate.
  • 100% of Hofstra Students are compliant with the University’s vaccination mandate for on campus classes (compliant includes full and partially vaccinated on campus students and fully remote students).

We will continue to provide updated information to the Hofstra community.

This is the final semester report.
