Contact Tracing and Case Management

Ontario’s local public health units are responsible for COVID-19 contact tracing and case management. The university will offer public health units consultation and collaboration as appropriate. When there are confirmed positive cases, the university adheres to privacy legislation that requires the identities of individuals to be kept confidential.

It is highly recommended that all students, faculty and staff download the Government of Canada's COVID Alert app, which can let people know of possible exposures before any symptoms appear.
