Case tracking: one community member tests positive

Wednesday, October 7, 2020

On Monday, October 5, 2020, Region of Waterloo public health informed us of one individual from our community who tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is in self-isolation and public health officials are in the process of contacting relevant close contacts.

If you have not been identified as a close contact of the individual, you should continue to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and seek testing if needed.

You can keep track of COVID-19 positive cases amongst students and employees who attended one of our campuses using our new dashboard. Starting October 1, we will track confirmed positive cases and keep a complete record of cases as they are reported.

We take the privacy of individuals extremely seriously. In reporting on positive cases, the University will protect the private health information of individuals. You should check our disclosure protocol for what to do if someone reveals to you that they have tested positive for COVID-19.
