Case tracking: one positive test reported

Friday, November 6, 2020

On Thursday, November 5, 2020, Region of Waterloo public health informed us that one individual on our campus has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is self-isolating. Public health officials are in the process of informing all close contacts of this positive case.

If you have not been identified as a close contact of these individuals, 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.
