Case tracking: one community member tests positive

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, Region of Waterloo public health informed us that one individual who was present on campus has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on campus on Friday, October 30, 2020. They are currently 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.

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.
