COVID-19 Weekly Reported Cases

These are last week’s self-reported cases received by NSU at all of its locations combined. Statistics are updated each Monday for the preceding week.

When NSU learns of a case, the individual is provided access to guidance and support services, including advice on how to safely isolate and observe protocols to contain the spread of the virus. Individuals who test positive with an active case of COVID-19 (and even those who exhibit flu-like symptoms) are required to stay away from the classroom, campus, or work spaces and remain quarantined, following all proper CDC guidelines, until it’s appropriate to return to work or campus.

The Student Experience

What to Expect When On Campus

When you arrive on campus, you’ll notice we made some changes to help keep everyone as safe as possible – including informational posters, more hand-sanitizing stations, and safety plexiglass installations. At NSU, we pride ourselves on our commitment to serving a diverse student population. Grab lunch in the open air or set up a study group via Zoom. However you do your part, let's team up to keep our Sharks swimming in safe waters!
