Member of on-campus community tests positive for COVID-19; WECHU says no risk to campus

The University of Windsor has been advised by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit that a member of its on-campus community has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently isolating off campus. The health unit says there is no risk to the campus community.

UWindsor is operating under its COVID-19 response plan and working closely with the health unit. The University will provide further updates to members of the campus community as they become available.

Wajid Ahmed, medical officer of health for Windsor-Essex County, reminds members of the campus community to continue to be mindful of public health measures to reduce the risk of transmission, which include:

  • completing the campus self-assessment before attending campus;
  • practising good hygiene;
  • wearing a mask; and
  • remaining at least two metres from others when possible.

“The affected individual is in the thoughts of all members of the University of Windsor family at this difficult time,” said UWindsor president Rob Gordon. “We wish them a very swift recovery.”

The University is currently following a remote learning model with most classes being held online this semester.

Campus updates will be available at uwindsor.ca/returntocampus.
