Case tracking: two community members test positive

Monday, December 20, 2021

Update: A previous version of this post indicated we were notified of one individual who tested postivie for COVID-19. We were subsequently made aware of a second case.

On Monday, December 20, Region of Waterloo public health informed us of two individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 and who had visited our campus.

The individuals are in self-isolation and public health officials are contacting anyone indentified as a close contact of these individuals.

If you are not contacted, you have not been identified as a close contact of either 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.
