The dashboard below represents the COVID-19 test and case counts and vaccination rates among UC Santa Barbara community members who reside in university housing or who work, study or conduct research on campus. Testing data reflects results from the university's proactive asymptomatic testing of undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty and staff members, as well as from symptomatic testing and self-reported cases. Asymptomatic testing results in a greater number of positive cases because it identifies infections other testing protocols would likely miss.
