Bates College is committed to providing regular updates to the community about COVID-19 testing results. This dashboard tracks primary epidemiological and healthcare resource metrics beginning Aug. 18.
Prior to Aug. 18, Bates recorded two confirmed cases of COVID-19, both last March, both among employees and both recovered.
There will be a lag in posting results to the dashboard as there is typically about 24-36 hours of processing time once the specimens arrive at the Broad Institute via courier. Once we receive the results, individuals who have tested positive will be notified directly by Human Resources or Bates Health Services, then we summarize all test results from the Broad, and then we update the dashboard. This means that results are typically posted two days after the specimen was collected. We expect that Thursday and Friday test results will be posted on Mondays.
