SMU Cases

CONFIRMED COVID-19 CASES AT SMU

As SMU is informed of positive COVID-19 cases, the University uses a contact tracing protocol to identify and notify people on campus of who are known to have come into close contact with the person infected. Close contact is described by the Centers for Disease Control as within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes (without direct respiratory droplet exposure).  

Cases posted reflect individuals who have been working, living or studying on campus. SMU will not release the name of any individual, only basic details of the case, and we ask that you respect each person’s privacy as well. The University will update this list in a timely manner as information is verified. If you would like to be updated when a positive case is added to the campus list, please email subscribe-covidcasenotifications@list.smu.edu to receive notifications.
