*Positivity (%) is the proportion of all positive test results delivered out of all tests collected in the Bryan-College Station area. Tests (including students, faculty and staff) are processed by Texas A&M University Student Health Services (SHS) and at Curative, Inc. Data are summarized weekly, and the weekly positivity (%) is the proportion of positive test results delivered out of the total number of Student Health Services and Curative COVID-19 tests performed for that week. Numbers may change as additional test results become available from all testing sites.

**Clinical COVID-19 testing during Feb 13-20 was disrupted due to inclement weather. Because of the few number of tests delivered, the positivity should not be interpreted as representative of campus as a whole.

*Positivity (%) is the proportion of positive test results obtained out of all specimens analyzed as part of the Texas A&M COVID-19 Testing Program in the Bryan-College Station area. Saliva specimens are analyzed by PCR at Texas A&M University. The Texas A&M COVID-19 Testing Program operates multiple testing sites across campus providing free non-FDA testing to all faculty, staff, students, and contractors who identify as being without symptoms or signs of illness; individuals with non-negative Texas A&M test results require diagnostic confirmation using an FDA-approved testing provider, not reflected here. Period positivity (%) is the proportion of positive test results delivered out of the total number of Texas A&M Tests performed for the indicated bi-weekly testing period. Data do not include tests rendered at a clinical interface or other testing sites on or off campus where members of the Texas A&M community may seek testing, Numbers may change as additional test results become available.

**The Texas A&M Testing Program did not have testing available during Feb. 13-20 due to inclement weather. Because of the few number of tests delivered, the positivity should not be interpreted as representative of campus as a whole.

*Positivity (%) is the proportion of positive test results obtained out of all testing performed as part of the Texas A&M COVID-19 Testing Program in the Bryan-College Station area. The Texas A&M COVID-19 Testing Program operates multiple testing sites across campus for all faculty, staff, students, and contractors. The Return to Campus testing program operated a one-time testing campaign at the initiation of the Spring 2021 semester; individuals reporting a positive COVID-19 test in the prior 90 days and employees with alternate work locations were exempted from testing.

Data include results of the Texas A&M Test for individuals who identify as being without symptoms or signs of illness, analyzed by PCR at Texas A&M, results from tests processed at Curative, Inc., and results ascertained from records provided by individuals documenting PCR tests obtained at outside testing providers. Data are summarized separately for an employee testing window and a student testing window, and the positivity (%) is the proportion of positive test results delivered out of the total number of tests registered during the testing period. Data do not include tests rendered at off-campus locations where members of the Texas A&M community may seek testing, Numbers may change as additional test results become available.
