Health unit confirms second, unrelated case of COVID at UWindsor

The University of Windsor was informed Thursday by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit that a second member of the campus community has tested positive for COVID-19. The confirmed case at a student residence is unrelated to the initial case reported on Nov. 3.

The University has taken the necessary steps to initiate self-isolation requirements in consultation with WECHU, which says there is no current risk to the on-campus community.

UWindsor has implemented enhanced cleaning protocols in affected areas and is providing additional support to any individuals who may be impacted.

The health unit will take the lead on contact tracing and next steps, and and will contact directly any individuals identified as close contacts.

The University of Windsor is currently following a remote learning model with most classes being held online this semester. Students, staff, and faculty are reminded to practise good hygiene; wear a mask; keep 2m from others when possible; and complete a self-assessment questionnaire prior to attending campus, available at:
