The fall in COVID-19 cases across much of the world over the past ten weeks signals a new dawn in the fight against the disease. Vaccines are proving effective and rapidly scaling, bending the curve in many geographies. This is a fragile dawn, however, with transmission and deaths still high, unequal access to vaccines, and variants of concern threatening to undo progress to date.

Many parents are also trying to find a balance between answering their children’s questions about the pandemic and enforcing health-promoting behaviors and social distancing rules without creating an atmosphere of anxiety. Not to mention keeping kids engaged and entertained with schools closed and playdates cancelled. The increase in COVID-19 cases in long-term care facilities mirrors a rise in community spread.

Since the beginning of the semester ASU has tested 55 percent of students living on campus and has tested 17 percent of students living off campus. The incidence of testing has increased as we launched periodic testing of a statistically significant percentage of our student and employee population. ASU maintains a low positive incidence with students and an even lower positive incidence with faculty and staff. Total positive tests reported for September 7, 2021 is 1,982. Total positive tests reported for September 13, 2021 is 2,278.

The current known positive cases in the ASU community have increased since our most recent report. The current known positive cases in the ASU community have decreased since our most recent report. There is no change in the university’s housing or learning modes of operation. Arizona cases continue to increase and health experts report that the state is experiencing a surge. ASU is providing regular updates on our COVID-19 Management Strategy, which supports virus management efforts at the state, local and university levels. One value used to understand the level of viral transmission is Rt, roughly the average number of people subsequently infected by each currently infected person.

Scientists are still looking into how easily Omicron spreads compared to the previous dominant variant, Delta. The CDC expects that someone who’s infected with Omicron can spread it to other people, even if the infected person is vaccinated or doesn’t have symptoms. While scientists hoped initially thathigher temperatures and humidity levels might help slow the spread of the coronavirus, that was not the case. Experts advise caution and say thorough public health efforts have more influence than weather on the spread.
