The following message was sent to all Ohio State students, faculty and staff on Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
As the first day of classes draws to a close, I want to share with you my gratitude for your commitment to our mission to teach, learn and explore new and exciting research and artistic opportunities — all while working together to stay safe and healthy.
I write to share that this afternoon, the university is publishing the aggregate test results from our COVID-19 testing program, and we are unveiling a data dashboard that will be updated weekly to inform the public about test results and other related information.
Information is a powerful tool in stopping the spread of the virus, and we want you to have as much information as possible. I know you join me in offering our love and support to the members of our Buckeye family who have tested positive and are in isolation.
We want everyone to be able to enjoy all that this great university has to offer. Let’s continue to be well, stay safe and support each other Together As Buckeyes.
Kristina M. Johnson, PhD
