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.
What happens when a case of COVID-19 is confirmed?
York has planned carefully for a variety of possible scenarios and we are utilizing our Incident Management Protocol to isolate and contain all situations that arise for those that come onto our campuses and for those within our live-in community.
In any scenario of positive COVID-19 diagnoses reported to the University, we liaise closely with Toronto Public Health and follow their guidance and provide all necessary information to assist their efforts with contact tracing.
Toronto Public Health also assesses if there is a community risk of transmission, and the University adheres to all direction provided to mitigate any identified risk.
York advises any member of our community exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19 to immediately self-isolate, self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and contact Toronto Public Health , OntarioTelehealth or a doctor to determine if they should be tested for COVID-19.
