Dear Radford Family:

For the latest reporting period, April 26, 2021 through May 2, 2021, Radford University administered 255 tests with three positives, representing a weekly positivity rate of 1.18 percent. This final update includes exit testing with 90 tests (82 students and eight employees) on the main campus and 17 tests (12 students and five employees) at Radford University Carilion (RUC). I am very pleased to share that the positivity rate for exit testing was zero percent due to the committed and outstanding efforts of all Highlanders!
