Case tracking: one community member tests positive

Thursday, November 26, 2020

On Thursday, November 26, 2020, Region of Waterloo public health informed us of one individual on our campus who tested positive for COVID-19.

The individual is in self-isolation and public health officials have been in touch all 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 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.
