TCU 360 is tracking COVID-19 cases among TCU students and employees using data provided daily by the university. The graph will be updated weekly on Fridays.

Student cases with a direct on-campus impact have more than sextupled during the first week of classes, increasing from 8 to 51 cases.

According to TCU’s definition, a direct on-campus impact means the individual was on campus within two days of “symptom onset or receiving a positive test.” An indirect on-campus impact means the individual did not report being on campus within two days of either of those qualifications.
