A weekly update on confirmed numbers of positive cases of Covid-19 amongst members of our University community.

These figures combine cases reported to us by students and staff through our Covid Helpdesk, and cases notified to the NHS through the national testing scheme. They give an accurate weekly snapshot of confirmed coronavirus infection currently associated with our community, and cumulatively since 1 September 2020.

Not all positive cases are physically in St Andrews; the figures include members of our community who live elsewhere and acquired the infection outwith the University.
