Case tracking: two community members test positive

Thursday, October 14, 2021

UPDATE: An earlier version of this notice indicated one case had been reported by public health. It is now updated to reflect that two cases were reported on October 14, 2021.

On Thursday, October 14, 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 officials have been in touch with all known close contacts of these individuals.

If you have not been identified as a close contact of an 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.
