With just over two weeks before fall classes start, ASU reported 50 total active COVID-19 cases among students, faculty and staff, an increase of 15 from last week.
According to the Monday update, 29 cases are among students, and faculty and staff make up the remaining 21.
All active student cases are off campus in the metropolitan Phoenix area, and there are no students isolating on the Tempe, Downtown Phoenix, West or Polytechnic campuses.
Since Jan. 1, the University has reported 2,378 total positive cases out of 102,663 tests administered, yielding a total positivity rate of about 2.3%.
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, there were 1,441 new cases and no new deaths in the state Monday. Arizona’s total positivity rate is currently 9.7%.
In June, Ducey issued an executive order barring public higher education institutions from requiring students to get vaccinated or show proof of vaccination.
"Businesses will stay open. Students will be able to attend school. There will be no mask mandates. We have a proven solution with the vaccine," Ducey said in the statement. "I strongly encourage every Arizonan who is eligible for the vaccine to get it so they can protect themselves and our whole state."
Currently, over half of Arizonans have been vaccinated, with 51.6% of people having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to ADHS. Over 3.7 million Arizonans have received one dose, and over 6.7 million doses have been administered.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 56.8% of the U.S. population has received one dose of the vaccine, and 49.1% of Americans are fully vaccinated.
