COVID-19 University Updates

The University will report major University actions decided by the Emergency Operations Committee and any new reported cases of COVID-19 within the community as information becomes available. The University will continue to provide periodic updates on this webpage if new COVID-19 cases are reported. This count should not be considered comprehensive due to the University's significant reliance upon self-reporting and the quickly changing nature of the outbreak.

*Cases include cumulative positive results from Pepperdine screening testing, other University testing, and diagnostic or self-tests by community members in their home locations.

**Active cases are defined as University community members who have tested positive and are currently within their isolation period.

+On-campus and off-campus designations are determined by information gleaned in contact tracing. As a result, adding these two categories may not always equal Pepperdine’s total cases. This information updates as the contact tracing process progresses. On-campus indicates a case who was present on a Pepperdine campus. Off-campus indicates a case with no presence on a Pepperdine campus.

University Cases by Week



University Positivity Rate

 

  • The University's positivity rate is determined by Pepperdine weekly screening testing, based on the date the test was taken.
  • Since shifting to optional testing on March 20, 2022, the number of individuals testing each week has significantly decreased and continues to go down. These smaller testing populations lead to greater fluctuations in Pepperdine's positivity rate.
