202 Auburn students and five University employees tested positive on Auburn's main campus last week.
According to the University's Campus-Specific COVID-19 Data page, these numbers don't include any of the test results from the University's reentry testing plan. Rather, they are only the number of students and employees who tested positive between Aug. 15 - 21.
This increase in cases comes after students packed bars in downtown Auburn over the weekend, often disregarding face-covering and social distancing state orders.
