Case tracking: two community members test positive

Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Region of Waterloo public health have informed us of two individuals on our campus who have tested positive for COVID-19. One individual tested positive on Saturday, March 13 and the other tested positive on Sunday, March 14.

Both 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.
