Covid-19 cases at Keele

Following the Government announcement on 21 February 2022 that all remaining Covid restrictions would be lifted in England on 24 February, colleagues and students are no longer required to notify the University's Covid Response Team if they test positive for Coronavirus. As such, the information on this page will no longer be updated as data will not be available. The graphs below show the historic trend of case rates at Keele.

Daily confirmed cases

The figures on this page show the number of confirmed cases up to Wednesday 23 February 2022.

The data is for:

  • Keele University students who are living on campus
  • Keele University students who are living off campus
  • Keele University staff

From 27 Sept 2021, 'daily new confirmed cases' data only includes students or staff that have had a relationship with either the Campus, Clinical Education Centre, or Guy Hilton, 48-hours before showing symptoms, or if asymptomatic, 48-hours before testing positive.

Due to data verification and test results confirmation, there may occasionally be a short delay in updating results - these cases will be reported on the date that they were verified, although they may relate to earlier dates of testing. Date shown on the graph below is the publication date which includes new cases from the previous day, midnight to midnight.
