COVID-19 Case Data

COVID-19 Cases at SHSU

Last update: May 17, 2022

The Student Health Center will report positive, self-reported cases and testing results on a weekly basis, by the close of business each Friday.

Sam Houston State University numbers include positive COVID-19 test results for students, faculty, and staff who tested at the Student Health Center, and who reported positive results after being tested at other sites.

Results received from other sites will be added to the graph based on the test date. On occasion, persons reporting their results from other sites do not report their test results immediately to the Student Health Center. As such, case counts are subject to change when these results are incorporated.

Some students, faculty or staff who tested positive for COVID-19 at other sites may not have reported the results to the Student Health Center.

Historical COVID-19 Community Cases

The below charts represent COVID-19 community cases at SHSU and in Walker County up until March 6, 2022. The charts use the older CDC COVID-19 Community Transmission Level to categorize the data. On March 10, 2022, SHSU switched to the new CDC COVID-19 Community Level reporting system. These new CDC guidelines were not designed for campus community reporting, however, SHSU will continue to provide raw COVID-19 case data for the campus in graph form on a weekly basis as a frame for reference along with the CDC's currently assigned risk levels for Walker and Montgomery County.


Medical Privacy

To protect medical privacy, SHSU legally cannot release personal information about any students or university community members who are being monitored or tested for novel coronavirus, including their location. When a university community member is diagnosed with COVID-19, the relevant local health department and the university initiate appropriate protocols to protect the health and privacy of anyone deemed to be at risk.

What if I was exposed to one of these positive cases?

Please report all positive cases/known exposures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus.

Students: Self-reporting allows you to obtain a medical excuse note from the SHC if you miss class.

Any individuals who have been identified as a possible exposure will be contacted and advised of recommended testing and quarantine procedures.

The university has enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes in place for areas where a known exposure has occurred and will employ those procedures under the direction of emergency management.

All individuals should continue to actively monitor their health and follow guidance for preventing the spread of the virus.

What should I do if I am experiencing symptoms or tested positive?

If you experience symptoms and have been in contact with a person with COVID-19 or you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread, seek medical advice by calling to a healthcare professional. Students can make an appointment at Student Health Services by calling 936-294-1805. The Student Health Center will perform a COVID screen over the phone and arrange a testing appointment for you as indicated.

Monitor the CDC website for more information about the symptoms or what to do if you experience these symptoms.
