Northeastern has set up a Covid-19 dashboard to post daily updates on its testing and positivity numbers. Like BU, Northeastern’s set up its own testing lab, able to handle up to 5,000 tests a day.
Since Monday, the school has conducted 4,098 tests, with just one coming back positive. It’s turned its Cabot gym into the main campus testing site with 48 self-swabbing stations open 12 horus a day on weekdays and 8 hours a day on weekends.
Northeastern is requiring any students coming to Boston this fall to take at least three tests over five days before they’re allowed on campus and to then take a test every five days if they come onto campus at all.
