Case tracking: two community members test positive

Saturday, November 28, 2020

On Friday, November 27, 2020, Region of Waterloo public health informed us of two individuals on our campus who tested positive for COVID-19.

The individuals are in self-isolation and public health officials have been in touch with all relevant close contacts.

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.
