Important Update on COVID-19 Global Health Pandemic at Radford University Message from President Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D.

Dear Radford Family:

As part of the University’s continued commitment to transparency and weekly updates in reporting, I am pleased to share the latest testing data as part of the University COVID-19 Dashboard. To date, as part of the Spring 2021 semester, the University has administered a total of 2,564 tests with 38 positives, representing an overall positivity rate of 1.48 percent. For the most recent reporting period, February 1-7, 2021, Radford University administered 270 tests with two positives, representing a weekly positivity rate of 0.74 percent. This marks the third week of declining positive cases.

At Radford, the Spring 2021 semester began in a positive manner, and our latest testing data shows strong compliance and sustained progress. In order to continue this level of success, all Highlanders must remain fully committed to their health, safety, and well-being and that of others. Please maintain this strong commitment for the remainder of the semester by continuing to comply with face covering, gathering limitation, and physical distancing requirements.

With Highlander Pride,

Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D.
