Case tracking: one community member tests positive

Friday, August 20, 2021

On Thursday, August 19, Region of Waterloo public health informed us of one individual who tested positive for COVID-19 and who had visited our campus.

The individual is in self-isolation and officials have been in touch with all known close contacts of the individual.

If you have not been identified as a close contact of the individual, you should continue to follow our on-campus safety procedures including our campus check in screening daily, and 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 seek to 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.
