COVID-19 positive cases

A positive COVID-19 case in a building means that an individual either worked, attended class or otherwise spent a significant amount of time in this building.  One case might span more than one building.

The following actions are taken when there are positive cases on campus :

  1. Areas occupied by the individual during infectious period were contained, cleaned and disinfected
  2. Contact tracing was conducted by AHS with support from the University and anyone determined to be a close contact of the individual was contacted and instructed to isolateRisk to others present or working in the zones is considered very low

 

As per exposure criteria established by Alberta Health, “close contacts” include those who:

  • provided direct care or who had other similar close physical contact without consistent and appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE), OR
  • lived with or otherwise had close prolonged contact (i.e., for more than 15 min and within two metres) with a case without consistent and appropriate use of PPE and not isolating OR
  • had direct contact with infectious body fluids of a case (e.g., was coughed or sneezed on) while not wearing recommended PPE.

Individuals on campus should take precautions in all spaces, and work under the assumption that an infection is possible. Please continue to take measures to prevent the spread of COVID while inside and outside of the workplace. This means taking steps to protect yourself and others by practicing good hygiene, physical distancing and monitoring for symptoms.
