An off-campus student at the University of Windsor has tested positive for COVID-19, university officials announced Tuesday afternoon.

The student is currently in self-isolation at home, did not attend classes on campus, and no campus exposures have been identified.

The University says they have implemented their COVID-19 response plan and are working closely with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.

“The University of Windsor family extends sincere wishes for a quick recovery to the affected student,” said UWindsor President and Vice-Chancellor Rob Gordon.

“I have every confidence that the strict protocols the University has in place and its close relationship with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit will continue to keep our campus safe and healthy. Once again, I encourage students, faculty, and staff to follow the advice of the Health Unit regarding social distancing, the wearing of masks, and vigorous hand washing. We will continue to closely monitor this situation and will keep our campus, and the public informed going forward.”

The University of Windsor is currently following a remote learning model, with most classes being held online this semester. Any individuals who must attend campus are required to wear a non-medical mask when entering all campus buildings and in common areas where physical distancing is difficult and must complete a self-assessment questionnaire prior to attending the campus.
