COVID-19 Testing Dashboard

Faculty, staff, and students who are approved to come to campus are required to take part in Phillips Academy’s testing protocols. Data contained in this dashboard represent the results of those tests and are updated weekly. Test results are listed by the date that samples were collected by Phillips Academy.

Robust testing and contact tracing protocols are at the center of our monitoring and containment strategies. Every member of the staff, faculty, and student community who will spend time on campus is required to undergo a COVID-19 screening test on a regular basis, at least weekly.

Students will be tested at least three times in the first two weeks on campus.
