As students, faculty, and staff trickle back to campus, Harvard has set up a testing apparatus aimed at stopping the spread of coronavirus. Students living in campus housing have to get tested three times each week; most other affiliates have to get tested once a week.

Still, there are some factors Harvard can’t entirely account for, including the hundreds of students moving into off-campus housing in Cambridge and Boston over the next several weeks. At other colleges and universities across the country, off-campus housing has been the locus of several COVID-19 outbreaks, in some cases causing schools to shift their reopening plans entirely online. It remains unclear whether those students will cause a rise in Cambridge’s case count.

Below is a summary of the data Harvard and the city of Cambridge have reported about test results in the area.
