This page will be updated regularly with the current status of confirmed COVID-19 cases reported to York University. The numbers consist of community members who were present on our campuses prior to their diagnosis (i.e. not those studying/working remotely).
In the event of a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, health authorities are responsible for assessing the risk of transmission within our community, and any needed contact tracing and follow up.
You can help our community stay safe by following public health guidelines and safety protocols for students or the protocols for employees.
