Wentworth Institute of Technology has concluded the Fall Semester COVID-19 testing program.  Updates to the COVID-19 Dashboard have been suspended until we begin testing for our return to campus in the Spring. 


The Wentworth Institute of Technology COVID-19 Dashboard provides information relating to the health of our campus communities by transparently sharing metrics such as the daily and cumulative number of tests conducted, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, and current campus and local percent positivity rates, consistent with local and state reporting protocols. Our testing operation is well underway and operating effectively. The dashboard data will be refreshed regularly with the most up to date information.

Current Risk Level

Alert Level Yellow: Yellow-level status acknowledges the presence of COVID-19 virus, the ongoing pandemic, and a “new normal” of campus operations. There is a reduced COVID-19 transmission risk on campus due to effective mitigation strategies and/or minimal campus spread
