Auburn University recorded 598 new COVID-19 cases between Aug. 31 and Sept. 6, according to data released by the University on Tuesday.
This is the largest weekly increase in cases that the University has reported since reopening in mid-August.
Last week, the University reported 517 new cases; the week before they reported 208.
This brings Auburn's total to 1,323 cases in three weeks.
According to the University's website, the new cases being reported each week are drawn from two sources: self-reported data and GuideSafe's sentinel testing.
At the time of publication, the University has not released the positivity rate for these 598 new cases. The number of tests performed in the weeklong period represented by these cases has not been released either.
