Cases Reported Across the Network Since March 2020

Due to Webster University's distributed model, with campuses on four continents and a global online network, the positive COVID-19 cases reported below are segmented by location and remote/online settings. Webster moved to modified, remote operations at all locations in March 2020 and remained so for the summer 2020 term. In fall 2020, return to in-person operations varied by location and local guidelines.

The table below differentiates positive cases when an individual (student, staff or faculty member) was studying/working on a campus around the time of their positive test, and cases involving community members who were remote/online only and did not visit a campus during that time.
