The table below reports the number of people across our entire staff and student community who have recorded a positive Covid-19 test and informed Cranfield in that week, whether they have recently been on our site or not.

The number of cases at Cranfield continues to be significantly lower than the UK higher education sector average and we are committed to being completely transparent by publishing this weekly tracker on our website.
