Randomized testing is key to keeping Mason’s coronavirus rate low

George Mason University’s active cases of COVID-19 remain low, thanks to everybody doing their part. Active cases and testing data are available on the COVID-19 dashboard.

There are approximately 11,500 students enrolled in some type of face-to-face instruction this fall and 1,200 faculty teaching on campus.

A big reason that Mason has been able to maintain those levels is the randomized testing of asymptomatic community members at the Ángel Cabrera Global Center on the Fairfax Campus. An algorithm built by Mason faculty selects people to invite for testing from among those who have indicated they will be on campus at some point during the semester.
